Boiling wontons in the microwave?

boogiebaby | Dec 11, 201412:22 PM     6

I want to make my homemade wontons in chilli oil for my coworkers. Normally at home, I boil the wontons for a couple minutes, then drain and toss with the sauce.

I was thinking of making the wontons at home the night before, but not cooking them, and then cook them in the microwave. Could I nuke water until hot in a bowl, add the uncooked wontons and nuke for another couple minutes and then drain them? Has anyone tried boiling food, especially wontons in a microwave?

I'd rather not boil them the night before and reheat them in the microwave, but if that's what I have to do, then I'll do that instead. I'd rather cook them fresh if possible.
