Reheating Chick-Fil-A Nuggets in the Microwave (Not Really Recommended)

The microwave should be your last option and only done if you are totally desperate.

As we mentioned earlier, for fried foods to retain their crispy/crunchy exterior, it requires dry heat.

When microwaves heat up foods like fried chicken nuggets, the end result is that it comes out soggy and rubbery, not crispy and crunchy as you were expecting.

This is why the microwave is an absolute last option, but at least they will be piping hot.
