If you are a fan of reheating your food, you probably simply plonk it in the microwave and hope for the best

Here are five foods you are most likely to reheat and how to do it so it tastes somewhat edible.

Avoid putting this one in the microwave as it will just become chewy. For the best result, pop it in the oven at about 180°C.

Don’t reheat this – it will never taste the same and actually tastes pretty good cold.

In need of heating that casserole that your mum gave you after Sunday dinner? Well, cover it with a little cling film and place in the microwave on a medium temperature until thoroughly cooked.

Cover your potatoes in tin foil and heat it in the oven for about 10 minutes. Remove the foil and pop back in to make them crispy.

When reheating chicken it is important that it is done properly.  Cover with a little cling film, pierce a hole in it and heat on full power for about 2 minutes. Check it is heated thoroughly – if not put back in for a few minutes. Leave to stand before serving.
