How Do You Reheat Chicken in the Microwave Without Drying It Out?


To reheat chicken in the microwave without drying it out, place it in a microwave-safe bowl, cover the bowl with cling film, peel back one corner and run the microwave for three minutes. Remove the bowl from the microwave, wait two minutes and remove the cling film.

Another way to reheat chicken without drying it out is to put it in an oven. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit, place the chicken in a baking dish, blot the surface with a paper towel, baste it with olive oil and heat it for 25 minutes. This reheating method produces crisp skin and a moist interior.
