Zesty Herbed Chicken
|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)|
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.
