Magic Chicken Recipe

Step 1

Mix spices (except garlic) together and blend well. Rub in to chicken pieces.

Step 2

Arrange chicken pieces in microwaveable casserole and pour in orange juice to cover.

Step 3

Mince garlic and add to juice, add any remaining spice mixture.

Step 4

Microwave 30 minutes at 70% power, turning pieces over halfway through to ensure even heating.

People watching fat can pull the skin off the chicken (or use skinless pieces in the first place); people eating fat can leave it on.

I like to take the cooked pieces and pop them under a broiler for a couple of minutes on each side to brown them and crisp them up a bit.

The orange juice can be re-used for up to two subsequent batches, though it is kind of ruined for serving at breakfast time.
