    Jen T's Note:

    A good way to cook these in summer when its too hot for the oven. Cooked in a 700wt oven. This recipe comes from my copy of microwave cooking by Alison Holst. A well known cookery book writer in New Zealand. I have been making this regularly for years. You may have to adjust times depending on your oven.

      Thank goodness I got this from you! It made my day~because of the ease, the very little prep, and I had everything on hand, right there in my kitchen. Oh yes! And a microwave! This is a great recipe, I made it the same, except I used a baggie to roll the chicken (in the flour) and also I used thighs that had bone in/ and skin. I made a pocket in the thigh and just stuffed with the bacon/mushroom mixture. I did increase the time, by 5 minutes, but other then that all the same. Great, great and thank you so much Jen T. *Aus/NZ Recipe Swap*
