Take home fried chicken-the NEXT day

True story: I was living in another town with my 2 small kids.  DH was in the Navy at the time & out on a deployment.  Went out to a local fried chicken chain/caterer.  They'd had a wedding cancel-out their catering order & were selling ALL chicken items as BOGO.  I felt "Bummer" because between the 3 of us we couldn't EAT that much chicken.  The gal behind the counter gave me the BESTEST. TIP. EVER.  Get the BOGO chicken & enjoy fried chicken tonight.  Tomorrow night (or the next.....IF IT LASTS THAT LONG!) put 1/2 bottle any kind of BBQ Sauce in a bowl.  Whisk in (almost) the same amount of......LEMON JUICE.  Coat your chicken pieces & place 'em on a foil lined cookiew sheet/baking pan.  Re-heat in a 350 degree oven for about 20 min.  (Keep an eye on it, it's done when the BBQ sauce bubbles around the chicken.)  Can also be re-heated on the grill....but that's not necessary.
The lemon juice CUTS the grease & coats the crispy skin.....making the BEST. BBQ CHICKEN. EVER.
