It was not the best that I ever ate but it was definately the best that I ever made. I didn't make it in the microwave but on the stove. I liked it, and it was easy to make. One of the reasons it was probably not the best I ever ate is because I used chicken that was all ready cut up so there was no skin and less fat and less taste. I have to watch my fat intake.

- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- 2 stalks celery, thin slice
