Ingredients
  Lemon juice/Lime juice 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Garlic 1 Clove (5 gm), minced
  Chili powder 1 Teaspoon
  Ground black pepper To Taste
  Freshly ground black pepper To Taste
  Whole chicken breast 1 1⁄4 Pound (1 Whole Breast)
  Citrus salsa topping 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Salt To Taste
Directions

1. Combine the lemon juice, garlic, chili powder, and salt and pepper to taste in a round mi-crowaveable dish. Rub this mixture onto the chicken and marinate for at least 10 minutes.
2. Cover the dish tightly with plastic wrap, poke a few holes in it for steam vents, and microwave at 100% power for 10 minutes. Uncover, turn the chicken over, re-cover, and microwave until just cooked through, another 6 to 7 minutes. Let the chicken stand for 3 minutes (it will cook a bit more upon standing). Spoon the juices over the top, and serve with the salsa.
