Sprinkle capon with seasoned coating for chicken as bottle instructions direct. 7. Place capon, breast-side-up in a shallow, heat-resistant, non- metallic baking dish. Use an inverted saucer as a rack to keep capon out of pan drippings. 8. Heat, loosely covered with a paper towel, in the
Microwave Oven 40 minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the bird (not touching any bones) registers 160 F. DO NOT PLACE THERMOMETER IN MICROWAVE OVEN.
Wrap in aluminum foil and allow to stand 15 minutes before carving. If it is necessary to reheat capon, DO NOT PLACE ALIMINUM FOIL IN MICROWAVE OVEN.
