Chicken breast meat is extremely bland. If you don't think so, you've never eaten a real chicken that lived longer than 6 weeks.

Wrap loosely in plastic wrap and micro heat. That’s how I would do it. Put a few drops of water on the chicken before covering or wrapping.

Often I'll poach several pounds of chicken breasts when they are on sale. I shred or dice them and then freeze the meat. I use it for a quick soup or some recipe that requires shredded or diced chicken. It usually involves some spicy sauce that is heated.

That's a perfectly fine way to reheat shredded chicken.

Chicken, reheat with the best results by putting it into a 325 degree oven, covered with foil, just until it is warmed through.

For the dry, flavorless problem, cut it in thin slices, marinate in some soy sauce, ginger powder, garlic, pinch of brown sugar, then stir fry some nice veggies and drop the chicken in at the last minute, cook just enough longer to warm it up. Or do the same with a batch of cooked rice noodles or ramin.
