Thanks all, felt too nervous to take the risk so have binned it. Bloody online shopping - use by dates often seem much too soon

Yes I would if it doesn't smell and isn't furry.
But I am well known for my lax standards.

No one has died yet in my family.

Not a hope in hell. Not all organisms that can put you in the hospital actually smell.

just chuck - not worth the risk

I would only use it if it looks and smells ok, If there's any off smell or looks bin it!

No chance.

Smell it. If it smells ok I would risk it. Use by dates arw arbitrary anyway x

No - not with chicken. I have risked one day before but two isn't worth it. Chicken can be very nasty.

No. Definitely not.

I have a pack of chicken breasts two days past use by date, unopened. Would you?
