If you’re like me, you’re always looking for ways to make your life more efficient. And what’s more efficient than reheating cooked chicken nuggets? I mean, why cook them fresh when you can just heat them up and have them ready to go?
But as it turns out, there’s a bit of a controversy surrounding reheated chicken nuggets. Some people say they’re just as good as fresh, while others say they’re dry and rubbery. So which is it?
I decided to put the debate to the test and see for myself. I heated up a batch of cooked chicken nuggets, and here’s what I thought…
As long as they were cooked thoroughly the first time, it is perfectly fine to reheat them. You can reheat them in the microwave, oven, or stove. Just make sure they are cooked all the way through before you eat them.
In the oven
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place nuggets on a baking sheet and heat for 10-12 minutes.
In the microwave
If you’re in a hurry, the best way to reheat chicken nuggets is in the microwave. Arrange the nuggets on a plate and heat them for about 15 seconds per nugget.
reheating chicken nuggets that have already been cooked once is not recommended. The reason for this is that chicken nuggets are usually made with white meat, which is more susceptible to drying out and becoming tough when reheated.
If they’re more than two days old
You’ve probably had a cup of coffee that was too weak and watery, or too strong and bitter. Maybe it was even undrinkable. Chances are, the coffee was more than two days old.
Coffee beans start to lose their flavor as soon as they’re ground, and go bad soon after that. That’s why it’s important to buy coffee beans that have been freshly ground, and to use them within two days for the best flavor.
If you can’t get fresh-ground beans, you can extend the life of your coffee by storing it in an airtight container in a cool, dark place. Coffee that’s been stored properly can still be enjoyable after a week or two, but after that it will start to taste stale.
If they’ve been sitting out
You shouldn’t reheat chicken nuggets that have been sitting out. If they’ve been sitting out for more than two hours, they’re not safe to eat.
While most people think the best way to reheat chicken nuggets is in the microwave, there are actually a few other methods that work just as well. You can reheat chicken nuggets in the oven, on the stove, or even in the air fryer. Let’s take a closer look at each of these methods.
Place your chicken nuggets in an oven-safe dish and heat on the stove over medium-low heat until warmed throughout.

Coffee is also used as an ingredient in some savory dishes, such as beef Bourguignon, Middle Eastern lamb tagines, and North Indian chicken curry.
