Serves 4

The plum sauce is a low-fat way to make the chicken develop an attractive color as it cooks in the microwave.

1 chicken, cut in half lengthwise

1 cup plum jelly or pre


1/2 cup chicken broth

1/4 cup chopped onion

3 tablespoons red wine vinegar

1 1/2 teaspoons soy sauce

1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

1/2 teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder (optional)

Place chicken halves, skin side down, on microwave-safe roasting utensil, set aside.

In a 4-cup glass container, combine jelly and remaining ingredients. Microwave at HIGH (100% power) 4 minutes, stirring 3 times. Brush chicken halves with sauce; cover with wax paper.

Microwave at MEDIUM-HIGH (70% power) 10 to 12 minutes per pound, brushing chicken frequently with sauce. Halfway through cooking time, turn chicken halves over; brush with sauce. Re-cover with wax paper; complete cooking. Let stand, covered 15 minutes.
