Full Answer

For best results, sprinkle the chicken lightly with water before placing it in the oven to ensure that the meat does not dry out. Before serving, blot the chicken with paper towels lightly to soak up excess grease.

Avoid the microwave when attempting to reheat fried chicken as this will dry the meat out and leave the skin tough and no longer crispy.
