Sometimes your eyes are just bigger than your stomach and you over-order. If this happens at Chick-fil-A — don’t ditch the extra nuggets. Take them home for reheating later. It’s easy to restore the crispy outside and tender inside even after they’ve been refrigerated for a day or two. A microwave will get them warm, but will make their texture suffer; use a toaster or regular oven for the best results.
Step 1: Preheat
Heat the toaster oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Step 2: Spread Out the Nuggets
Lay the nuggets in a single layer on a baking sheet that fits the toaster oven. Alternatively, place them on a large square of heavy-duty aluminum foil.
Step 3: Bake
Cook for about 3 minutes and then check on the nuggets. If they’re not quite heated through, bake another minute or two. Check them frequently to ensure they reach the temperature you want.
Step 1: Set the Temperature
Turn on the broiler in your oven and place the rack about 6 inches below the cooking coils.
Step 2: Arrange the Nuggets
Arrange the nuggets in a single layer on a baking sheet or large square of foil.
Step 3: Broil
Place the nuggets under the broiler for just 2 to 3 minutes. Flip them over halfway through the broiling process so both sides crisp.
