How To Store Leftovers
With any protein-based dish you will want to store it for up to three days in the fridge. Placing in an airtight container is a great way to preserve your chicken and ensure it doesn't soak up other odors in the fridge.
You can then reheat it in the microwave for a quick reheat or a pan on the stove on low heat. If you do a higher heat you could burn the sauce on the chicken.
