Cooked on Wed night, I had some leftovers last night but there's still some left. Will it still be Ok to chuck in a stir fry tonight?

Thanks for any words of wisdom!

I would as long as it's been kept in the fridge will be fine.

Can't see any reason why it would not be ok.

Would not use after tonight though, unless freezing it for another time.

As long as you make sure it's piping hot to kill off any bacteria (sorry) then it should be fine. I do it all the time with a 3 day limit. I've never had an upset tum yet.

i always thought cooked chicken was ok to be used 3 days after no more

i always use mine up to 3 days in currys or stew etc

will be fine

for myself (not charges) i have a 5 day rule (so lomg as stored in fridge and hot etc) and i havent died or been ill yet grin

I'd do 5 no problem.

Agree with Moondog. Think of Christmas turkey leftovers. Sometimes we have been eating those up close to New Year!

Though actually, I give leftover chicken 3 days and then I give whatever is left to the cats.

Yes of course you can.

yes, I usually give three days for leftovers as a rule of thumb, but have been known to make soup at three days and then keep the soup for three days too.

I'm still here.
