Glaze the outside and the inside of each slice. Then, add chicken broth to the bottom of the roasting pan. This allows the ham to stay moist while baking, and you can use the broth to baste.
How do you heat up a pre-cooked ham without drying it out?
The best way to keep it moist is to heat it under foil. Place cut-side down on the rack, then loosely cover with aluminum foil on a roasting pan.
