  • If more crispiness required grill it for more 7 minutes. (Turn the Chicken upside down after 10 mins.)

It is important to keep checking the chicken pieces are getting properly cooked and sometimes it may take more than the usual time to grill the chicken pieces perfectly, so fear not let the microwave oven do its work and you relax.

Make sure that the chicken have been perfectly grilled and has soft and juicy texture inside out because that’s what a perfect marination will give you as a result in the end.
