Q: I loved the video on how to cook a perfect skinless, boneless chicken breast. My question is how do you reheat a skinless, boneless chicken breast without drying it out. Can you use the same method? If so, what would the time be?

Editor: Chicken breast can be tricky to reheat since it's such a lean cut, but overall, the method you use for reheating depends on how the chicken was originally cooked. A good rule of thumb for reheating leftovers, in general, is that they should be reheated in the same place they were originally prepared. So if your chicken was cooked in the oven, it should be reheated in the oven.

In this case, you could very gently reheat the chicken breast in a small amount of liquid in a covered pan.

Readers, what's you best method for reheating chicken breast without drying it out?

Next question?
