I would order them from a local pizza shop.

If that is not possible I would reheat them in a slow cooker or an electric frying pan.

Make a small batch at home and try a test run to see if your plan is acceptable.

Good luck!

I have had good luck keeping things warm (not sure about crispy) using heated bricks in a cooler. I heat up two or three bricks in the oven. Lay down thick towels. Put the bricks on the towels and cover with another towel. you can put your food in there and it will stay warm quite a while. This may create a humid environment and not work for your wings. you would have to test it.

The heck with them bricks! Smoke and foil two pork butts! They'll stay scorching hot for several hours. Besides you can eat your "warmers".

It's really not doable. I would tell your co-workers you can either do non-crispy hot wings or something else. BTW, a toaster oven shouldn't set off a smoke alarm unless something is burning.

I would grill them to crisp instead. I think they microwave better. I've done this many times with left over chicken wings I've taken to work.

Andy's right. They won't keep very long if you can't warm them up in a regular oven.

Instead of frying your wings to crispy pefection, and then trying to maintain that crisp texture, try baking your wings, without a batter or coating. You can marinate the wings in a hot sauce mixture will give you the flavor you're looking for. The wings can then be re-heated in the microwave without loss of quality (If done carefully).

If you need them with a coating, do as suggested above, thn, when already hot, sprinkle with toasted Panko breadcrumbs, or regular breadcrumbs.

Another suggestion, fry them, store in the fridge. Bring them to work, and reheat in a portable roaster to heat them before lunch.
