    if youre having them tomorrow, they'll be fine in the fridge overnight. just check the use by date.

    Thanks for that.

    When defrosting in a refrigerator store chicken in a container ensuring the defrosting meat is separate from other foods and will not drip juices onto other products.


    Is that a sealed tupperware container or just a dish?

    Cheers.

    leave them in the fridge and use them tomorrow or the day after aslong as their not out of
    date


    just leave the plastic bit in the pack so it covers the meat


    i do it all the time with all my meats never been ill yet (i even eat just out of date stuff, although i cook it in th microwave so i know its nuked)

    I had a chicken breast last night. It had been sitting raw in the fridge (in a sealed plastic bag) for at least 4 nights and was fine although probably pushing it :) If you want to store chicken for any longer freeze it.

    Rule with food - if it's not green and doesn't smell funky, down th'atch!

    Smell is a good indicator when its raw but not when its cooked (I used to be a butcher), I always wash raw chicken under cold running water if its been in the fridge a couple of days just to get rid of the top layer of bacteria and that slimyness that chicken sometimes has.

    Obviously I dont have to inform you not keep raw and cooked meat near each other

    we run and we run to catch up with the sun but its sinking
