Wow! Finally had an article published. Thanks to WonderHowTo....

this looks delicious. how long is "cook until done" though? - half an hour, an hour? what's the average?

thanks toastykitten for the comment. "cook until done" means when the chicken meat is tender it is already cooked. So time may vary from 30 to 45 minutes depending on the chicken meat.. On average 30 minutes will do.. Thanks again,,
