To cook a grilled chicken in the oven, you need to prepare a marinade. In a bowl, mix: kefir, finely chopped onions (raw), crushed garlic, a couple of spoons of olive oil, half a lemon juice, ground black pepper, a couple spoonfuls of chicken and salt. Mixing everything, pour this mixture into the bag for baking. Then we put the thoroughly washed and gutted chicken. If the chicken remains small hairs from feathers - sing them over the fire, removing the cap from the hob. Having tied the packet tightly with the chicken, we begin to shake it properly, so that this marinade permeates the chicken from the outside and from the inside.

Do not believe when you are told that a chicken grilled inmicrowave will not work. The opinion that cooking a chicken in the oven is the only option is wrong. People who think so do not know that there is a very simple and elegant way of cooking chicken in a microwave oven. To do this, take a gutted and washed carcass of a bird weighing 1-1.2 kg, rub it outside and inside with a mixture of spices and salt. Spices should be taken for chicken meat.
You can make marinade yourself by simply addingspices juice from ½ lemon, a couple tablespoons olive oil and a couple of crushed garlic cloves. And then cover with spices and a layer of mayonnaise (so that the skin does not burn).
Before laying the chicken in the microwave, the tips of the wings and legs are very tight so that they do not fall off, wrap them in pieces of foil.
Pickled chicken, lay on the grate, underwhich we put a flat container to drain fat. Be sure to turn the chicken. If your microwave oven is equipped with a grill function, then the carcass inside will turn over itself.
Then we press the desired program and wait. The cooking time depends not only on the weight of the feather, but also on the model of your microwave oven.
