This is a quick and yummy meal. Next time I would add a bit more sauce.

The wattage just means that if it is lower than the 1,100 it will take longer to cook.

Have made this MANY times. So easy and always gets raves. I cover the dish with a lid but wax paper, etc. would also work. The name was originally Chicken Breast Cacciatore. I do not know why they changed the name for this site. I had a very difficult time trying to find it in order to add it to my recipe box.

Sorry about that I have just seen the wattage printed below, but would still like to know about the cover.

This sounds lovely, does it matter what wattage the microwave is? When you say cover is that with a lid or baking paper?
