How To Reheat Peking Duck

It would be a shame to let Peking duck go to waste, all those savory spices and tangy goodness.
But can it be saved as leftovers and reheated? Absolutely!
And I’m going to show you how.
I’ve collected a few tips for reheating Peking duck in five different ways, including by traditional oven, microwave, air fryer, stovetop skillet, and by hot oil or deep frying.

  • 1 portion Peking duck
  • 1 teaspoon Butter


  • Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
  • Spread melted butter or olive oil lightly on the duck pieces and skin.
  • Arrange the skin on top of the duck meat and place it in the oven.
  • Heat for 5-10 minutes until thoroughly warm.
  • Turn the broiler on to crisp skin to your preference for the last 2-3 minutes.


The butter adds moisture to the dried-out meat and helps to crisp the skin. It also adds a beautiful flavor. If you don’t like butter, oil will also do the trick.
Layering the skin on top of the meat means any leftover fat can drip down onto the chicken, adding to the juiciness.
