    Shop Plastic Storage Containers. Food Safety Warning. Make sure the chicken is cooked thoroughly when cooking in a microwave, as eating raw meat can cause illness. Even the best microwave oven may heat food unevenly, so make sure that all parts of the chicken are cooked.

    If your vegetarian girlfriend comes over for an hour, sure.  To keep to eat later...I think not...

    The short answer is Yes-but only for a short time. If you buy the cooked chicken at 3pm and want to store it in the microwave for a couple of hours, it is fine. But overnight? No.

    Only if you do one of 2 things. 

    1. Set your Microwave to "Refrigeration mode" 

    or

    2. Toss out the chicken before you eat it if you are "storing" it for more than 2 hours. 

    Why not "Store" cooked (or raw) chicken where everyone else puts it.  In the refrigerator or the freezer.

    Please don't store a chicken, cooked OR uncooked without refrigeration.

    Yes, once it has cooled, the microwave will be closed and be cool, I'd only do this maybe for a day if my fridge was full up.

    Yes you can, for as long as you want, just don't try to eat it after two hours.
