Both took the same amount of time to reheat. The microwave did a great job in no time, delivering a hot, juicy chicken. Put the chicken in a micro-safe dish, cover with plastic wrap vented at one corner, microwave it at full power for 3 minutes. Let it sit, still covered, for 2 minutes.
Can you reheat a cooked chicken?
It doesn't matter how chicken meat is cooked the first time, it is only safe to reheat it once. Similarly, the chicken can be reheated in a microwave, a frying pan, in the oven, on the barbecue, or even in a slow cooker. Remember: Reheated chicken meat must be consumed in one sitting!
What temperature does chicken have to be reheated to?
Most people reheat their food to "warm" or even "hot" but not cooking temperature. Unless you reheat to an internal temperature of 74° C / 165° F, then all that time in the danger zone after cooking is cumulative.
