This is a quick and easy microwave recipe for chicken that keeps in lots of flavour and moisture. You can adjust the herbs to whatever you want. Serve with the side dishes of your choice.


Serves: 4 

  • 2 cups (500ml) water
  • 2 cubes chicken stock
  • 125g butter
  • 1 tablespoon dried Italian herbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried dill
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt, or to taste
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

Preparation:5min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:20min 

  1. Pour the water into a microwave-safe casserole dish, and place in the microwave. Heat until boiling, about 2 minutes. Stir in stock cubes, butter, Italian herbs, dill, and garlic salt.
  2. Pierce the chicken breasts with a fork on one side, and place the pierced side down in the casserole dish. The chicken should be almost covered by the liquid, if not completely covered.
  3. Cover the dish, and cook in the microwave for 10 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink, and juices run clear. If the chicken is not done after the 10 minutes, continue to cook at 1 1/2 minute intervals.

Garlic Salt

You can substitute fresh garlic and salt if you don't have garlic salt.
