Chicken Wings (Hot Wings) to work

Hi All,

I'm in charge of bringing hot wings to work, and I want to try to keep them as fresh as possible. I thought about bringing sauces for the side instead of spinning them. I'll be frying them at home and bringing them in for later. The only way to reheat would be a microwave.

Any tips for keeping them crispy and keeping them fresh?

I've found that crispy and microwaves can't co-exist.

I totally agree.

Things that are originally crispy get soggy in a microwave. To keep them crisp, a toaster oven or an actual oven with dry heat is the way to go.

I'm thinking that inside of a ziplock bag and then inside of a cooler of warm water won't be much better.

Not allowed in a hospital. We'll set off a smoke detector. :)

They allow hot wings in a hospital?

Putting them in a zip-lok would make them soggy I would think. A paper bag would probably work better. The hospital must have a kitchen? Maybe they would allow you to reheat them.
