you can cook a turkey or whole chicken. would need to brush with brown sauce as they won't get brown, but will be very tender and juicy. i make a chicken casserole that is done completely in micro. if you would like, pm me
if i think of anymore will post it here.

How do I private message you for microwave recipes?

If you don't mind, may I ask you for some microwave recipes, too?

Hi Cowardly Cook! If you look in the top right corner of your screen you will see your name and there is a link to the private messages. I will send you one now to help find it.

Thank you, Bilby. I got it!

And thank you again, babetoo, for the wonderful chicken casserole recipe. Is this the same one your grandchildren ask you for all the time?

Oh and bacon crisps up very well in a microwave. Prepare the bacon to whatever shape/size you need ie dice it or leave as rashers, etc. Put bacon on kitchen towel on a plate and cover with more kitchen towel. Make sure you spread the bacon over the plate cos it joins together when zapped if not careful. Depending on your microwave, how crispy you want your bacon, the type of bacon and how much you are zapping will determine how long you cook it for. I don't recall having ever zapped bacon for a minute though - but I may have!

Thanks, Bilby.

I have tried this, but I get such dried-out bacon! It feels soft, thin cardboard when I chew it, and there is minimal bacon taste.

Many people recommend this method, so this technique must work somehow.

I've followed different advice re timing and the number of towels above and below the bacon for microwaving, as well as wildly varying directions for cooking in a standard stove oven, but haven't ever liked the results.

FYI, I don't do this for adding into salads, etc., but for eating just by itself with eggs.

If you have any suggestions, I'd love to hear them.

i don't care for bacon from the micro. they do make a pan that is supposed to do the trick in micro. i have not tried it, but check at amazon, etc.
