Part micro, then finish off in the oven. As Re-design said-make sure they are cooked through, hence the thermo.

The alternative is to 'butterfly' them. Cut them to the bone lengthwise, and with a sharp knife scrap the flesh from the bone, working right around until you can remove it.

Now spread the leg into a flat piece, skin side up. They will cook much faster this way. I do them on the BBQ,-basting them with any marinade of my choice.

Microwave will do it in about 30.  MUST check the internal temp with a thermo.
