4 cloves garlic, minced
2 ounces diced green chilis
1/2 bunch fresh cilantro, chopped

Freshly ground pepper

Place the chicken in the sauce, flesh side up, with the thick side toward the outside of the dish. Baste with the sauce mixture. Cover tightly with double plastic wrap and cook on high for 7 minutes. Uncover and cook on high for 2 minutes. Place a pepper ring on each piece of chicken, return to oven, and microwave on high for 2 minutes more.
