Bake, uncovered, at 425° or until the chicken is no longer pink and the juices run clear. Remove toothpicks before serving. Microwave Directions (timing based on a 1100-watt oven): Place chicken in a greased glass pie plate. Microwave on high for 2-1/2 minutes. Turn plate; microwave for 1-2 minutes or until juices run clear. Let stand 5 minutes.

Very tasty. I used boneless thighs and it was very juicy and tender. I didn't have chicken coating mix so I sub seasoned bread crumbs with seasoning salt added. I baked it til it was over 165F internal temp and didn't microwave it.
