Best Way to Reheat Chicken
How do you reheat chicken without drying it out? We thought you’d never ask! Of course, the air fryer comes to the rescue again! Reheating chicken in the air fryer instantly crisps up the outside, sealing in all the juices while the inside becomes heated and tender all over again! Air fryer reheating means the chicken doesn’t taste like it’s been cooked twice. And it only takes minutes!
