    easter dinner-cooked chicken advice 16th Apr 06 at 10:54 AM
    hello

    I bought a cooked chicken reduced to 1.50 in Sainsburys which will be for dinner today (shameful I know on easter sunday but the rest of dinner will be cooked with love and Im doing pudding!)

    whats the best way to reheat it? or shouldn't it be reheated?

    thanks!

    I would just re heat it in the oven, prob about 30mins, maybe wrap it in tin foil so it doesnt brown any more.

    the ready cooked chickens that are bought hot in supermarkets usually have a notice to say do not reheat

    Why not just have it cold? you can have hot gravy with it.

    sorry nearlyrich that's a pet hate of mine, hot gravy on cold meat. I was once given it at a special family meal. It's the only time I remember backing a very faddy eating family member up when they nicely complained .

    OP-What does it say on the label-can you re-heat it?

    I would guess the shop will say do not re heat, as they have to protect themselves in case of food poisoning. I myself, have cooked chicken on a Sunday, and then re heated the following day, and have never had any problems!!! I would say the same for a chicken i bought, or even one i had cooked, frozen, and then re heated!!!
