Select your microwave wattage in the dropdown. The cook times in this recipe will automatically change accordingly.


To find your microwave’s wattage, look at the front panel, the side of the door, in the back, in the user manual, or Google the model number. If both an input and output wattage are listed, use the output.

Wattage translates to how powerful the microwave is. The higher the wattage, the faster your food will cook. The lower the wattage, the longer the cook time.

When in doubt, start with less time — you can always add more.

Microwave oven by power - 700w



The Medium Shallow Dish


  • 2 (225g) chicken thighs, bone-in skin-on
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt, to taste
  • Black pepper, to taste
  • 1 ½ tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon harissa
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch


  1. Place the chicken In the Anyday dish and pierce the surface with a fork. Coat chicken thighs with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Cover with the lid (knob lifted).
  2. Cook in the microwave at Power Level 6tooltip for 9-10 mins, or until chicken is cooked most of the way through. Once ready, transfer the chicken thighs to a baking tray.
  3. Meanwhile, preheat your broiler.
  4. In the Anyday dish you cooked the chicken in, add honey, harissa, apple cider vinegar, and cornstarch to the juices from the chicken and stir to combine. Cook uncovered for minutes.
  5. Brush chicken thighs with the sauce and place a few inches under the broiler for about minutes, or until browned. Keep an eye on it, since it will go fast!
  6. Spoon extra sauce over chicken to serve.

Serving suggestions & tips

  • Garnish with lime and chopped cilantro if desired.
  • Serve with rice, pasta, or beans.
  • Enjoy with flatbread or even tortillas for a delicious wrap or taco filling.

Recipe notes

  • Piercing the surface of the chicken will reduce the chances of loud popping sounds as the steam escapes the chicken while it cooks.
  • Microwave ovens vary, even with the same wattages. Adjust cooking times as needed.
