How Should I Store and Reheat Leftover Chicken and Waffles?

To start, make sure the leftovers are completely cool. Then, use a separate airtight container for each. Put waffles in one and chicken in another. To reheat, the waffles should be heated in a toaster to make sure they are crispy. Also, the best way to reheat the chicken is in the oven at 350 degrees until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.

While both the chicken and waffles can absolutely be heated in the microwave, using the toaster and oven will ensure that you have crispy waffles and crispy chicken.
