How long does chicken last once cooked?

How long will chicken stay good once it's cooked and refrigerated? I'm trying to go on a chicken breast and vegetable diet for a while and want to cook my meals ahead of time.

Thanks

Honestly the only response I can give is one week, because that's as long as it stays in my refridgerator before I eat it all.

I cook five breasts every Sunday night, cut them up into little squares and put it all in a tupperware container in the fridge. By the next Sunday morning, I've got just enough left for a nice omlet.

Thank you for asking this question! On a side note, what is the best way to purchase chicken breasts in bulk (so that I can keep what I don't use in the freezer?).

Most of the bagged chicken breasts I've seen aren't pure chicken, they also have rib meat/some sort of solution, is that as healthy or do I need to buy the tyson chicken breasts that come in like 5-6 in the meat section?

I hate the taste of reheated poultry. I can't pinpoint exactly what is so repulsive about it, but there is a definite discernible difference in flavor.

I'm going to guess 2-3 days is safe because that's the limit in restaurants. I think it varies on how long before it was refrigerated and how consistent the temp in the refrigerator is.

I'm glad you asked that question, I've been wondering the same thing. This is the second week i've had some boneless skinless chicken breasts that i baked in the fridge. I grilled one of them yesterday it tasted the same as the first day i baked them.

I tend to buy the big package from the poultry section, NOT THE FREEZER SECTION. If you plan to freeze some or all of it, separate the breasts into individual ziplock baggies with all the air removed. If you don't separate pre-freezing you'll end up with a block of chicken to thaw. The individual bags are also great for marinating/brining while thawing.

3 days to be safe. I've gone longer of course, as most have especially during thanksgiving. But I guess if e. coli is a concern it's 3 days.

edit: meant salmonella

i've always considered a week to be the limit for cooked food that's not frozen... and i agree on the taste... longer than a day or two, and it starts to taste like the bottom of my shoe... i cut it up, and stir fry with rice, soy sauce, and spices to bring back some flavor

For raw chicken breast, i'd suggest buying in bulk at a Costco, Sams, etc. and freezing in individual baggies (use sandwich bags instead of ziploc ones to save money) packed inside of a large good quality ziploc freezer bag...

My mom does it that way, and somtimes sends a few home with me in a cooler.

i cook 6 every week, they seem to be perfectly fine for about the 4 days it takes me to eat them. I think you'd be safe for up to a week.

Indefinitely. Bake a 12-pack of chicken breasts, let them cool to room temp, and then freeze them in individual zip-lock bags/containers/or plastic wrap. You can dice the cooked chicken first, to save you time later on (if your plan is to eat the chicken diced).

Simply microwave when ready to eat. Done!

Disclaimer: I'm a vegetarian, but this is how I used to eat chicken. Vegetables can be fun!

Or just invest in ziplocks and wash them out after use. They last forever

I've done 7-9 days on numerous (~once a month) occasions. Tightly sealed container in a cool fridge of course.

I buy a 10 pound bag of boneless skinless breasts at CostCo, costs about ~$25
