Can You Cook Chicken in the Microwave?

Yes, you can microwave chicken, and yes, it really is as easy as it sounds. You can cut down on the time and effort typically needed to make a dinner by microwaving chicken breasts. 

Can These Chicken Skewers Be Cooked On The Grill?

Of Course, follow these simple steps:

  1. Soak your skewers in water. You’ll have a mess on the grill if you use wooden skewers and neglect this step.
  2. Mist the chicken. I find it easier to spray the chicken with nonstick cooking spray before putting it on the grill rather than attempting to coat or oil the grill grates.
  3. Low-grill. To prevent the chicken pieces from burning, cook on medium-low.
