Can I Make This AHEAD or Store it?

 To store any leftover chicken, you could place it in a paper towel-lined airtight container and then store it in the fridge. The paper towel would absorb all condensation and keeps that chicken crispy until 3 days. For best results, reheat leftover fried chicken in a 350-degree oven for 15 minutes.

 Please notice that crispy juicy Fried chicken is best when it is fresh and the skin is still crispy.
