I don't know what you mean by a combination microwave, however, I have cooked whole turkeys in the basic microwave and they turn out really good. I just followed the directions in the book that came with it, or else you can google it and see what you can find out. For turkey breasts I cook them in the crock pot/slow cooker. They turn out nice too. There are various recipes online for whatever you want to add to them.

I cook turkey in the micro all the time it gives a very moist flavorful result. I have my frozen turkey quartered (cut in 1/4ths) by the butcher at the grocery store so it will fit in the microwave. (I also get the biggest one I can find, the higher the poundage the better the meat to bone ratio.) Put the thawed turkey part in a glass dish, I use glass pie pans. ( It keeps the juices for gravy or soup from running all over the place.) Wrap with plastic wrap to cover the bird and hold in the moisture; then poke a FEW holes in the top of the plastic to vent steam.


Put in the microwave, set for 50% power and cook for 10 min per pound. Check carefully with a meat thermometer before removing from the wrapping, sometimes it takes a little longer to get the meat cooked near the bone.

Remove the wrapping carefully, there will be steam (that is what actually cooks the turkey). The flavor is superb and that white meat will actually be juicy and moist (something you don't get in a regular oven).

This is so good I buy multiple turkeys at the seasonal sales, have them quartered, and eat turkey year around.
