Reheating shredded poached chicken for tacos

Any suggestions? I am not sure whether to put the chicken in a foil packet in the oven with a little broth, or perhaps microwave it?

    I'd saute in a skillet with a little butter, salt, and pepper. That's how I reheat chicken for enchiladas (a trick I learned from Cristina Ferrare).

      If you're going for plain shredded chicken taco, shred and reheat in a little broth. If the chicken doesn't need to be plain, you can also reheat it in a little bit of the salsa - red or green - you're planning to use for the tacos.
