Default reheating chicken thighs from the oven

i'm having a few people around for a meal and was going to do masses of
chicken thighs in the oven. it looks like people will have to arrive at
staggered times throughout the evening.

if i cook the chicken thighs earlier in the evening will they successfully
heat up a few at a time in the microwave for latecomers, or will that change
the taste for the worse? So might it be better to dish them up cold?
thanks for advice.

They'll heat up with no problem. But, juicy meats tend to heat up faster
than you might expect. So, use a low-medium power setting, cover with waxed
paper (NOT plastic wrap), and pay attention to the sounds & smells.

My concern is the microwaved thighs will turn rubbery.
A different strategy might be to keep them warm in a low
oven throughout the evening, rather than cooling/reheating.

Re-heat them as individual servings. Not all at once.

Ms Om, would you like to restate that advice? Are you suggesting she warm up
one serving at a time, or would you rather say "small batches"?

Or just set them out on a hot plate.
