“Look - some men can and some men can't! My husband, despite his best efforts, often used to produce barbecued meat that was either charcoaled to extinction or barely dead. I found this recipe in Annete Human's Microwave Winners. It's saved us from certain death by food poisoning. I produce a platter of this "marinaded chicken" and it's barbecued safely. Tastes good too. The tomato burns easily so the chicken must be watched carefully. It needs overnight marinating.”
