I've just put some chicken that is off into my casserole. I've taken it out but should I throw the rest of the casserole out?

And I should add that this is the fourth sodding time I have had gone off chicken that is in date angry

So is the rest of the casserole doomed now?
Its only got onions and carrots in with some oil and wine atm but its still all uncooked.

angry The first time I try to be organised and this happens.

I wouldn't risk it tbh and I am usually quite cavalier about that kind of thing.

I would chuck it as not worth the risk IMO. I'm not surprised you're angry.

im laid back about most things too...

but would not eat a casserole that had had off chicken in it either...

happily eat chicken a day or 2 past use by dates (that looks and smells ok, AND then properly cooked etc) and havent died yet, but i really wouldnt risk chicken that is actually off...

its just not worth being violently sick is it?

Its starting to smell a bit funny.
I thought it was ok when I opened the pack as usually you get a horrid whiff of rotten eggs when its totally off, but I started peeling the veg into the box and I could smell something bad.
I checked the chicken and nearly gagged.

Arsing hell.

Such a waste of food.

Thats 3 carrots, an onion, some garlic, wine and a whole pack of chicken down the drain.

Will have to ring Tesco again.

oh bollox. have you checked your fridge temp, if your chicken keeps going off?

muddleduck Mon 06-Oct-08 14:53:12

Where did you buy it from?

MMooMar Mon 06-Oct-08 14:54:33

Are you sure it was off?

Chicken that is packed into those plastic tray things always gives off a smell which can make you think it has gone off and I think alot of the trays now state something about this on the label where the cooking instructions are.I used to be like that when we used to buy it like that,but use a butcher now.

Tesco angry

Fridge is on top setting and all my other meat keeps ok.
Its always their chicken.
In fact I think I've had more than 4 lots of it off now.

I buy their packs of drumsticks and thighs which are BOGOF and I've had it with their whole chickens too.

sorry Nbg, i was a bit slow on posting that!

Nbg Mon 06-Oct-08 14:56:12

Oh yes it was definately off.
It made me retch.

MMooMar Mon 06-Oct-08 14:58:49

I would bin it all, bet you dont enjoy it if you dont anyway!

Nbg Mon 06-Oct-08 15:45:59

Its gone in the bin now.
I'm just defrosting some more chicken now so I can make sweet and sour.

I wont be suprised if thats off too hmm

I've had that happen with chicken sooooooo many times from Tesco angry

Dropdeadfred Mon 06-Oct-08 15:47:31

stop buying crap tesco chicken?

Nbg Mon 06-Oct-08 15:59:06

When we have more money so we can afford non crap chicken, then we will buy non crap chicken.

In the meantime, I will have to rely on buying supermarkets own meat.

Dropdeadfred Mon 06-Oct-08 16:01:39

but surely the amount of food you are wasting (like today) makes it not worthwhile?

get Ocado to deliver - they price match all branded goods with Tesco

I've tried to order with Ocado before but they don't deliver to my area sad

Do they really price match?

I'll get my money back on the chicken as it was bought online.
I have called them in the past and they have refunded with no quibble.
Doesn't refund me for the hassle and inconvienience though.

Nemoandthefishes Mon 06-Oct-08 16:05:20

oh NBG you sound like me am fed up with throwinf off meat away that is still in date despite having replaced the fridge freezer ans it being at the right tempangry

Its so annoying isnt it!

See I bet Ocados meat is expensive.

At Tesco they do the packs of thighs and drumsticks BOGOF and 2 packs of mini breast fillets for £5.
But if its always off then its a waste of time buying it.

I'd suggest maybe trying Tesco's frozen chicken? It's highly unlikely to be off and so might save you from having to throw money in the bin in future?
