Remove chicken from its packaging and arrange on microwave-safe baking dish.

Arrange bone-in pieces in a microwave-safe baking dish with meaty portions toward edges of dish, tucking under thin, boneless portions. Do not crowd the pieces in the dish. Cover with waxed paper. (Or, for skinless poultry, cover with a lid or vented plastic wrap.) Microwave on 100 percent power (high) for the time given or until no longer pink, rearranging and turning pieces over after half of the cooking time. (For more poultry cook times download the chart below. Downloading requires Adobe Acrobat software.)
