When you go out with friends or family to a sports bar like Steamers Sports Pub, sometimes there is going to be more food than you can possibly eat in one sitting. In many of these instances, we wrap up our leftovers, take them home, and then throw them away a week later. This is because many of us have tried before to reheat wings and ended up with a soggy or rubbery disappointment meal. When it comes to reheating wings, it’s usually the technique that’s wrong, not the idea.
It is often the way that we heat up our wings that will determine if they are any good. While the microwave is fast and easy, it’s often the worst idea when it comes to your leftover wings. The microwave doesn’t retain the original crispiness of the skin, and uneven cooking can make your wings taste more like rubber– especially if you leave them in there for too long. Instead of choosing the faster, easier option, choose an option that is going to take a bit more time, but be well worth it. An oven or toaster oven is a great way to ensure slow, steady heating that won’t dry out your wings. For the best results, make sure you place your wings on a wire rack on a baking sheet rather than in direct contact with the baking sheet. This allows for better airflow and properly crisp skins. Heating your wings up in a cast iron pan also works well– just don’t forget to flip them!
