Italian Chicken (with Sauce)

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 25 mins

I found this recipe in a microwave cookbook that eventually fell apart. I saved this recipe, but I can't remember the name of the book to give credit. It is very easy & tastes like much more effort went into the dish. I added the "with sauce" to differentiate from another Italian chicken recipe I submitted earlier.

This was WONDERFUL!!!! This was my first time cooking with a microwave, sssssooooo easy. As a side dish I added a rice and veggie medley and poured some of the sauce over it, with sliced cucumber on the side. THIS ONE IS A KEEPER. I purchased the chicken with skin on(cheaper!!) so prep time was a little longer but oh well!!
