How to Reheat Fried Chicken in a Convection Oven

While fried chicken typically tastes best right after you make it, you can reheat the poultry if you have leftovers. Leftovers allow you to enjoy fried chicken without the effort involved in frying more. Storing and reheating the fried chicken properly will ensure that you do not lose the original taste and texture. Convection ovens reheat fried chicken particularly well because the oven allows the air to circulate around the chicken so that it heats evenly.
