Rotisserie Chicken "Refrigerator Lifespan"?

Rotisserie Chicken is sold hot & label has a 'sell by date'.
Take it home and straight into the fridge (38-42F) it goes.

How many days will it remain safe to eat?
(Say its sell by is today, when to toss it?)

.....it depends on many factors.....like how it was handled but have noticed it can go bad 3-5 days......have had mold grow in 2 days......the sooner you eat the better or take apart and freeze if you don't expect to eat immediately.....

It's generally not bad, but I'm a 3-4 day (after purchase) person. Make stock with the bones if you feel some of it is going to waste.

I'd guess that as well, although rotisserie chicken never lasts more than three days before it's picked clean.

Would last longer if you kept your regrigerator set at a proper temperature. That should be about 35 F, the recommended temperature for storing dairy products like fresh milk. The high temperature should not be above 40 F.

I regularly go 8 days before I finish one from Costco, but I put it in the freezer for about 3 hours before the fridge.

I regularly consume a Costco chicken in 6 days starting on the day I bring it home. Never had an issue.

MrNoBody,

Depends on how long it's been sitting out under the heat lamp in the store, how long it was out from under that lamp between the time you grabbed it and brought it home and put it away. In my household, we'd use the chicken within 4 days max. 7 to 10 days would never happen in my household, not even if there was still meat left on the bones. Even 5 days would be pushing things too far for us.

I agree with JoeH. Keeping the fridge at the proper temp is key. You can't go by the temp as listed on the door. Contacted Fridgidaire about the temperature setting and was told what is displayed can vary up 4 or so degrees compared to the actual temp of the fridge. A good, accurate refrigerator thermometer is a must.

My theory is that those chickens are on their last legs when they are cooked. That's why they're cooked.

I go 5 days (if it lasts that long before I eat it...).
7 days, if I'm going to use the rest to make stock, or do something that's going to simmer in a sauce for a long time to kill anything that might have grown in there...

Much past that? I start thinking "how LONG was it in that heat rack after they cooked 'em?" and "how long were those raw chickens sitting before they went into the rotisserie?".
I might chance longer if I had some confidence about those questions.. but, not a lot longer.

Some of those chickens seem 7/8 done to me.

Dennis,

That's one of the reasons I stopped buying them except from a few specific places. Always seemed like the chicken was cooked properly near the skin but undercooked as you got closer to the bone. Makes me wonder if they checked the temp of the chicken with a meat thermometer to ensure it was cooked through. That never seems to be an issue with the chicken we get from Boston Market. A couple of delis and local supermarkets? Definitely a concern.

Just threw out one last night that I never got around to eating.

I think I saw it growing a few patches of green feathers so I knew it was time....

Question for the refrigerator temp experts.

I tend to store leftovers and items like this on the bottom shelf of the fridge above the crispers - is there a difference in temp between the bottom shelf and the top (where I put milk. cans of soda, water, and other convenience items)?

Where is the best/coldest place?

ArtP,

Depends on the fridge. One thing I never do is store milk in the door. Anything I want to keep the coldist in the fridge, I keep towards the back, regardless of shelf. Condiments (ketchup, BBQ sauce, salad dressing, etc), soda and such, on the door.

Here is my secret to Costco chicken: cook it!

I've been sticking my chicks into a 375F oven for about 25m after I get home. Man, I wish I had been doing this all along, it's 100% better.

And since I never let any carcass go to waste, the chick stock I make withthe bones and leftovers is also 100% better. (Stick in an onion, carrot, celery stalk and bay leaf for a better stock still. And keep the skin on the onion.)
