How khổng lồ Reheat Fried Chicken

What"s the best way to lớn reheat fried chicken? The hard part, of course, is re-crisping the coating. So the microwave is out. Instead, Cook"s Illustrated recommends first bringing the chicken to room temperature, & then heating it in a 400 degree oven until the internal temp is 120 degrees F. Fried chicken thighs will be ready in about 10 minutes; fried chicken breasts will be ready khổng lồ eat in about 15 minutes. In a pinch, you can skip the bringing-to-room-temp part.
