This easy recipe came from a “follower” who wanted help adapting it to combination cooking. The “high” combination with 30% microwave power works well with 4 servings of chicken. Sauce helps the combination, too, as it helps protect the chicken during the microwave cooking segments. The original recipe was double the size in an oblong pan. This one has been downsized for smaller meal-needs. The chicken is moist and tender with plenty of sauce for rice, potatoes or pasta. Perfect for a quick Fall supper!
