It fit perfectly in the stack cooker (deeper bowl of the 2) and I popped it in the microwave. My microwave is a 1250 watt. Max wattage recommended by Tupperware is 900. So I lowered the power to 70%.
After 30 minutes, the bird was perfectly cooked. It was not dry and tasted wonderful! This sized chicken fed my family of four with leftovers. We stripped the remaining meat, tossed it in our Power Chef with some mayo, onions, and pepper and voila! We had chicken salad for tomorrows lunch. Slap that between two slices of bread. Put that into our tupperware sandwich keepers and we were ready to roll for the next day.
We also had frozen creamy Peach fruit bars for dessert. My god where have I been all these years without Tupperware?
I will post the recipes for each dish below. Enjoy!!
Microwave BBQ chicken bites
2 Chicken Breasts (approx 1.5 lbs)
BBQ sauce to taste (use as much or as little as you want)
Seasonings, salt, pepper if you wish.
Place thawed chicken breasts in the stack cooker. Coat with barbecue sauce. Use as much as you need. You don't need to put salt and pepper but if you want to, you can. Always add salt and pepper later to prevent overseasoning.
Cook chicken in microwave (900 watt recommended. Adjust power as necessary) at 6 minutes per pound. We cooked ours for 9 minutes.
When it is done cooking, let the chicken rest for a few minutes as it continues the cooking process in its "steam bath". Be careful when opening the lid, contents will be piping hot.
Remove chicken and cut into pieces. Put the pieces back into the stack cooker, replace the cover, and shake it up to coat the meat with the "gravy" in the pot.
Serve and enjoy!
You can cook as much as the stack cooker can hold. Just remember the key is 6 minutes per pound.
Roasted Whole Chicken
One 3.5 - 4 lb chicken, thawed
Butter to coat the chicken
Salt and Pepper to taste
Remove the giblets from the chicken. Rinse and dry the bird. Coat the inside and outside with butter. Add salt and pepper to your desire.
Place the dressed chicken into the stack cooker and place the lid.
Cook in the microwave (900 watt recommended. Adjust power as necessary) at 6 minutes per pound.
I cooked mine for 30 minutes at 70% power because my microwave is 1250 watts.
When done, be careful when opening the lid. Carve, serve, and enjoy!
Frozen Creamy Fruit Bars
1-1/2 to 2 cups heavy whipping cream
2 cups frozen fruit of your choice (we used peaches)
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 Tablespoons of powdered sugar
Load all the ingredients into the Power Chef or Chef Quick Pro System.
I recommend putting all the fresh fruits in first and then pouring 1-1/4 cups of heavy cream first with all ingredients and mix. Add cream as needed to help loosen the the frozen dessert.
Crank the handle or pull the string as much as you want until you get the desired chunkiness of the fruit.
You can eat it as is (soft serve texture) or put it in a freezer mate (pictured above) and freeze completely for a yummy treat later.
