How long should I bake a 3 lb. turkey breast in a microwave oven?

Please don't cook it in the microwave. If people only knew how bad they are. The take all the nutrients out of the food.
Wash the breast inside and out with cold water, and pat dry with paper towels. Salt and pepper the cavity. Place a small sliced onion, a celery stalk, and sprigs of fresh thyme, sage and parsley (or a combination of dried) in the cavity. Place the turkey in a greased microwave-safe baking dish. Rub vegetable oil on the outside, and salt and pepper. Cover the breast with a sheet of waxed paper. Place in the microwave and cook at 50% power for 9-10 minutes per pound. If you don't have a carousel in the microwave, turn the dish every 10-15 minutes. When done, remove from oven and let rest 15 minutes before carving.
