All poultry should be placed on a microwave

Factors affecting microwave cooking times
Many factors affect cooking times. The
temperature of ingredients used in a recipe
makes a big difference in cooking times. For
example, a cake made with ice-cold butter, milk,
and eggs will take considerably longer to bake
than one made with ingredients that are at room
temperature. All of the recipes in this book give a
range of cooking times. In general, you will find
The number of microwaves in your oven remains
constant regardless of how much food is being
cooked. Therefore, the more food you place in
the oven, the longer the cooking time. Remember
