Donabe steam-roasted "shi-koji" chicken breast...microwave cooking

I made another quick and wonderful meal for 1 with the microwavable donabe steam-roaster TOCHINSAI.

Boneless-skinless breast is no longer a "boring" ingredient. I marinated a breast with some homemade shio-koji, and let it rest in the fridge for a few hours.

The marinated chicken was brought back hear room temperature and placed on the lightly-oiled grate of Tochinsai. I pre-heated the grate for 2 minutes in the microwave (without the lid) so that the roasting effect would be enhanced (but it's optional). It was covered with the lid (pre-soaked in water for 1-2 minutes) and cooked in the microwave for 4 minutes.

The chicken was ready! I sliced and served with some thinly-sliced scallion on top and some lime wedges. Wonderful meal.

Happy donabe life.
