Recipe for roasted chicken in the microwave
Chicken loves children, and it is also low in fat. We recommend that you buy the corral or organic ones, without hormonal treatment. To prepare this chicken we will use chicken thighs. In addition we need onion, lemon, oil, parsley, black pepper and salt.
First you have to chop the onion very thin and put it in a dish or bowl suitable for the microwave. Then we water it with oil and pepper. We put this in the microwave, covered for about 3 or 4 minutes at maximum power. While this is cooking, we’ll salt the chicken thighs.
When the onion is ready we put on top the 2 chicken thighs, a little salt, and pour the juice of half a lemon. If we want also add parsley now. There are people who leave the skin, in this case we recommend you to remove it, but as you want. We will put the dish again, covered, at maximum power for 4 minutes. Then we take it out and turn it around.
In general it is not necessary to water again with lemon and oil, but if you see that it has fallen dry, do it again. Repeat the operation. If you have left the skin and your microwave has a grill you can put it 3 more minutes in this function. The most amazing thing about this recipe so easy and what you can do with children is that it smells like in the shops of roasted chickens.
