Poultry
1, No special techniques are required, Poultry should
be prepared as with conventional cooking. Season if
desired.
2. Poultry should be thoroughly defrosted, Remove
giblets and any metal clamps,
3, Prick the skin and brush lightly with vegetable oil
unless the poultry is self-basting,
4. All poultry should be placed on a microwave roasting
rack or a microwave-proof plate and placed on the
turntable.
5. Cook according to the instructions in the Poultry
Cooking Table below, Turn over halfway through the
cooking time, Because of its shape, poultry has a
tendency to cook unevenly, especially in very bony
parts.Turning during roasting helps to cook these
areas evenly.
6. Let stand for 5-10 minutes wrapped in foil after
cooking before carving. The standing time is very
important, as it completes the cooking process,
7. Make sure poultry is thoroughly cooked before eating.
Whole poultry is completely cooked when the juices
run clear from the inside thigh when it is pierced with
a sharp knife, Poultry pieces should be pierced with
a sharp knife through the thickest part to ensure that
the juices are clear and the flesh is firm,
