• 1 onion, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 4 large chicken thigh pieces, trimmed of any excess fat
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and crushed
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 4 tbsp chicken stock
  • 4 tbsp dry white wine
  • 3 tbsp, freshly shredded basil leaves
  • Freshly ground salt and black pepper

  1. Place the sliced onion in the base of your Microwave Pressure Cooker. Arrange the chicken on top and scatter the crushed garlic over the top. Add the remaining ingredients except the cornflour, place the lid on and seal.
  2. Place the cooker in the microwave and cook on HIGH for 15 minutes. Carefully remove the cooker from the microwave and allow the pressure to drop.
  3. When the pressure has dropped remove the lid and transfer the cooked chicken to a warmed serving dish.
  4. Mix the cornflour with 2 tbsp cold water to form a paste then stir into the sauce mixture in the pressure cooker until thickened.
  5. Spoon over the chicken and serve immediately.
