How do you keep fried chicken crispy for a picnic?

Yesterday I made some fried chicken tenders that came out great. I needed to bring them to a picnic about 20 minutes after they were done so put them on a cooling rack for that time and then put them in a covered tupperware container. Unfortunately, on arrival my once crispy tenders were now soggy and greasy with no hint of crispiness left. What should I have done differently here to ensure they stayed crisp?
