    how long is chicken good for in the fridge?

    I used to cook in bulk but I just hated the taste of grilled chicken thats a couple days old. So I'd like to have a tupperware full of chicken thats ready to just be thrown on the grill whenever I need. However, my girl and I are debating how long prepped chicken would last in the fridge before it goes bad. Of course me being the guy says thats it lasts much longer than what she claims. So does anyone have any more accurate info? Thx in advance.

    Well Im not sure exactly on how long it lasts and Im sure it depends on a lot of things, but I have had chicken last at least 2 weeks without going bad just sitting in the fridge waiting to be cooked. Along with pre-cooked chicken that has lasted as long. And you can usually smell it when something has gone bad (or it will grow somehting nasty).

    2 WEEKS? You have to be kidding... chicken starts to turn after a couple days dude. Fresh chicken is relatively odorless, leave it in the fridge for a few days and it starts to get the stank... anything over 3 or 4 days and it starts to smell like death.

    Any raw chicken you aren't going to cook within a day or 2 should go in the freezer imo... just pull it out the night before and put it in the fridge it will be ready the next day.

    I think you are incorrect.


    OP - I would be comfortable leaving it there for 10 days or so....just cook it well! But keeping it in the freezer and thawing 2 days ahead of time would be best IMO.

    Google is your friend.

    The reccommended time to store cooked chicken is 3-4 days. Depending on your fridge, you could get another day or two out of it before you should worry.
    There is a skinny man inside me screaming to get out, but I can usually shut him up with some bacon.

    I dunno guys maybe I am hallucinating or something but I don't leave raw meat in my fridge for over a week and eat it... I guess it's the smell that gets me... not looking to get in an argument over it so bon appetite!

    I think it's deceptive because a lot of the chicken you buy in stores is vacuum packed . . . so it keeps a lot longer in the fridge. But if we're talking about nothing more than a piece of raw, thawed chicken on a plate or in a container (not in the original store package) inside your fridge, I wouldn't trust it past about 4 or 5 days. Marinated will last a bit longer. You might very well get a few more days out of it, but chicken is too darn cheap to risk food poisoning over it.

    If you are regularly eating chicken (cooked or thawed) that has been in your fridge for 2 weeks, you have been pretty lucky so far IMHO. Just my two cents, though.
    What . . . you've never heard of a 30-year bulking phase before??

    Sorry to break it to you but if you said 2 weeks to your girlfriend, then she won. Once thawed, chicken gets slimy and gross by like the 5th day. You might not see it if you had marinated the chicken. By the end of the second week it will smell nasty. I would take my chances with a piece of chicken contaminated with H1N1 before I'd eat your 2 week old chicken.

    I would only let it sit in the fridge in a ziplock uncooked in the fridge 3 maybe 4 days tops. After that it's trash in my book

    I'm pretty sure also that if you didn't like the taste of 2 day old fresh chicken, you probably won't like the taste of 2 week old chicken.

    If you pre-cook it, it will last much longer. I often will take about 6-8 chicken breasts and bake them in the oven wrapped in banana leaves, then let them cool before chopping them up into small pieces and putting the pieces in a tuppeware container. It takes me at least a week to get to the bottom of the container and at the very end it still smells and tastes good.

    Keep the temp in your fridge relatively low, and make sure anything you contain in there has a good seal. Using a large ziplock and putting said ziplock inside tuppeware isn't a bad idea either. The higher heat and more oxygen, the quicker things spoil.

    Personally I would never store raw chicken in the fridge, there's no point. You can take frozen chicken out of the freezer and put it in a container of marinade, let it sit overnight and the next day you're good. No point in having raw chicken in the fridge for more than a day when there's a freezer. Heck if you want to marinate it, then you don't feel like eating it... just put the chicken in a ziplock with some of the marinade and put it back in the freezer!
