Poaching eggs in the microwave

I’ve been experimenting with poaching eggs in the microwave. I’m getting closer to getting the results I want, namely not over cooked. I’m using a covered small casserole dish by Anolon (Anolon Vesta Ceramics Casserole 18 oz Cobalt Blue)

1/2″ water in dish
Microwave 2 min (uncovered) to get water boiling
Add 3 eggs
Cover with lid
Microwave 45 seconds
Let stand 15 seconds
Drain excess water
Salt + pepper to taste
