3
Put the ginger slices on top and sprinkle with the roughly chopped spring onions. Loosely cover the bowl with cling film.
4
Microwave the chicken (600-650W) for 3-4 minutes. Turn the microwave setting down to low then cook again for 3-4 minutes. Allow to cool.

Lightly boil the green beans and transfer to a plate. Place the chicken (shredded) on top and garnish with the watercress.

Tips & Note

●If you're not sure about the microwave settings, cook the chicken again at the same setting for one minute at a time after the first 3-4 minutes to check it's thoroughly cooked through
●Once you've microwaved the chicken, keep it in the juice for a while to retain the moisture. Shred the chicken in its juice at Step 5
