Recipe by Witch Doctor

Try this chicken, prepared in a microwave oven with the Black Bean, Tomato, and Feta Sauce. It is hard to believe that chicken prepared in a microwave can actyally be moist and juicy, but you will be pleasantly surprised. Not to mention how nice and cool your kitchen will remain during the hot summer minths.
