Shelf life for Roasted Chicken
I roasted a chicken on Sunday. Couldn't eat it all. It's now Thursday.
Can I still eat it without tempting fate????
I think that's stretching it and we go by "better safe than sorry" in our house. I once ate questionable turkey and still remember the episode. Yuck!
Well, I think it depends more on the condition of the chicken. How soon did you get it refrigerated? How long did it sit around at room temperature? I frequently keep roasted chicken up to a week with no problem, but I am careful about those 2 issues. Never gotten sick, nor has anyone else in my family.
