Why You Should Avoid Reheating Chicken More Than Once
By Haldan Kirsch
Meat eaters love chicken for being delicious, nutritious, and extremely versatile. However, chicken can dry out easily due to its low-fat content, which means you need to be careful when preparing a dish.
Chicken's bad habit of drying out doesn't stop once it's cooked, so you still have to be careful when reheating it. Food Network says that one way to avoid this is to only reheat leftover chicken once, because every time you reheat it, you’ll actually lose moisture and flavor.
The best way to avoid this is to only take out as much leftover chicken as you're going to eat. This way, you'll only be reheating each piece of chicken just before it's consumed, and you’ll avoid drying out the meat.
When you are reheating, it’s best to use moderate heat and wrap the food in foil inside a toaster oven or traditional oven. If that's not an option, then try the microwave, but remember to add a damp paper towel to add moisture inside the appliance while your food reheats.
