“This recipe is from the cookbook, "Southern Living: 30 Years of Our Best Recipes". It is my favorite grilled chicken recipe. Microwaving is a shortcut that cuts the cooking time in half for this chicken that finishes on the grill.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine first 6 ingredients in a small bowl. Use a whisk to mix well. Place chicken in a large heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag. Pour 1 cup of sauce over the chicken. Cover and chill the remaining sauce. Seal bag securely and let marinate in refrigerator for 6 to 8 hours.
  2. Remove chicken from marinade, discard marinade. Arrange chicken in a large baking dish with skin side down and thicker portion of chicken toward inside of dish. Cover with wax paper and microwave at HIGH for 10 to 12 minutes, turn and rearrange chicken after 5 minutes.
