How To Reheat Chicken Without Drying it Out

There are a couple different options when it comes to reheating chicken, the most common ways are in the oven or in the microwave.

  1. In the oven: Preheat your oven to 325 F degrees and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place the chicken in the centre of the aluminum foil and pull the sides up to completely wrap the chicken in the foil (brushing with a little olive oil prior to wrapping in foil will also help to keep the chicken crispy on the outside). Cook until internal temperature reaches 165 F degrees.
  2. In the microwave: Place the chicken into a microwave-safe dish. Again you can brush the chicken with olive oil to help the chicken stay moist. Cover the dish with microwave-safe plastic wrap and cook for 2 – 3 minutes at a time, until internal temperature reaches 165 F degrees. If you’re using regular plastic wrap – don’t let it touch the chicken as it can transfer chemical to the meat.
