Ok, got it! :thumbs:

A lot of companies do not allow electrical food devices. Not even those mini hot plates to keep your cup of coffee warm at your desk. PF's advice was spot on. That's why they often provide a cafeteria or small lunch room with a fridge and microwave oven. I have never been in a company that also provided a stove for employee use. Not even a hot plate.

If your company has a full cafeteria with staff, they might be kind enough to reheat them in their oven for you providing it is not in use or has just been cleaned and shut off. The best you can do is ask. But don't break any rules to accomplish your goals. It is not worth the price. And very shortly after you are gone, the rest of the employees will still be making their paychecks while you aren't. Good luck.

Sorry for the late response. Dry heat at the hospital is a no-no. No toaster ovens, flat top griddles etc allowed. The only thing we're allowed in the breakroom is a microwave and a tea kettle that hasn't been confiscated yet. :) I can do dry and crispy at home and my only option seems to be to maintain that somehow at work with a microwave. How do we minimalize damage?

I could sneak in a crockpot for the day...any ideas there with the lid ajar?

Maybe a crockpot with a towel over so the moisture cannot collect.

I'd just toss the whole idea and bring something else. It's an exercise in futility to try to bring crispy wings and then try to recrisp them. Has anyone else ever done it?

I've been thinking along the same lines as lyndalou. If your wings have to be crispy, I'd scrap the idea and go with something else. On the other hand, I think most of us have had wings that were not freshly pulled from the oven and they are still good, even if they are not still crispy.

And on the "other" other hand, maybe you could get a pork roast, shred it, and do pulled pork sandwiches with rolls...? Most folks like that, it's easy, and it would sure save you a lot of work and stress. Let us know what you decide, good luck to you with whatever you choose.

Chicken Wings (Hot Wings) to work

Sticky honey barbeque wings don't need to be crispy, and can be brought into work in a crockpot. Just another thought.

Not crispy, but really tasty, and can be taken and kept warm in you crock pot. This recipe has gotten good reviews from everyone who has tried it.

Smoldering Chicken

If you love Hot Wings*

If you love hot wings, then I have an outstanding barbecue chicken recipe for you. I call it Smoldering Chicken. It doesn’t burn your mouth, but leaves a warm glow.
And the flavor is amazing. Trust me, when you read the ingredients, you will probably think that this chicken is beyond the taste buds of ordinary mortals. It looks like it will be blistering hot. But it isn’t. It will surprise you. When I first made it, family members asked if I'd written down the recipe. Fortunately, I did.

The technique given is for use with a kettle-style charcoal grill, but can easily be adapted to any covered grill or barbecue, gas, wood, or charcoal. You could even bake the chicken in the oven. Enjoy.

1/3 cup Sriracha brand Hot Sauce
2 tbs. Tabasco Pepper Sauce
1 tbs. good soy sauce
½ cup water

8 to 10 chicken thighs, with the skin removed

Mix the sauce ingredients together. Pour into a 1 gallon freezer bag & add the chicken pieces. Move everything around inside the bag until the chicken is well coated with the sauce. Press the air from the bag and place it in the refrigerator for two hours. Make your side dishes during this marinating time.

Fire up the grill with a solid bed of charcoal and let it go until the coals are glowing. Place the chicken on the grill, leaving space between the pieces. Cover and close all vents half way. Cook for 7 minutes. Remove the lid and turn over. Cover and cook for 7 additional minutes. Test with an instant read meat thermometer. Remove the chicken when the temperature reads 160 degrees.

This is the direction that we're going. :)

Great minds...!

Yep, give up the crispy idea completely..it will just never happen. Never let them see you sweat is my motto.
