    Questions about chicken


    just wondering how long is it safe to keep cooked chicken (say fried breast pieces) either in the fridge and once its out of the fridge.
    I need to start eating more and was wondering how much chicken i could fry up in advance.

    I typically cook about a weeks worth sunday night then put a days worth in baggies and freeze them. I take out a bag the night before and throw it in the fridge to defrost. It still dries out a bit but it is easier then cooking every day

    Raw meat, after being brought home from the store in the refrigerator will last a few days before spoiling. In the freezer meat could be kept up to a year frozen solid. While you could theoretically keep it forever, freezer burn will degrade the quality of the meat.

    Cooked meat should not be kept out at a range of 40-140 degrees for more than a few hours. Bacteria will start to grow in this range. In the fridge well sealed, a few days.

    If you plan to keep raw meat in the fridge for a few days pre marinate the meat, using salt will ward off some bacteria depending on the amount.

    When thawing meat, in a filled sink with cold running water.

    Being a student, I will eat it even if it's been in the fridge a week unless it smells terrible. The longer you wait the more chance bacteria have grown; but I know I cooked it well initially and so it's OK for up to a week but within a few days is ideal. Freezing is a great solution!
