Dh doesn;t have the sense he was born with.

I asked him to put the organic chicken in the fridge in the oven to roast.

I've just taken it out, and he'd left the giblets in their plastic bag inside.

I fished out the bag and it was intact and I;ve put the chicken back in the oven = but is it safe to eat?

Check for gall bladder.

Also, anything inside the cavity won't be cooked through right.

It's dodgy. Not worth it.

Thanks - just about to sit down and eat it. Giblets have gone in the bin I'm afraid.

Don't men in the kitchen lull you into a false sense of security? From someone who couldn't boil an egg when I met him he now cooks a lot, but is still able to come up with unpleasant surprises like this. wink

I've done this before blush didn't discover the bag until I was picking the carcass to make soup . No-one died smile

Gah - re-read the op and it says the gibs were in a bag!

I thought you meant you'd found em just in there, sort of still attached! blush

If you put anything inside the cavity, like stuffing for example, you increase the possibility of food poisoning yeah? So I was've cooked it for x amount of time but you haven't factored in extra cooking time for the 'insides'. - See?

Oh never mind.....

Thanks Doodle - still here to tell the tale - once I'd taken the giblets out, I put the chicken back in the oven for 15 minutes to make sure it was cooked through.

Next time, I'll ask one of the children to put it in the oven - they moan about having to take the giblets out (even though dd1 at one time wanted to be a vet), but at least they do it!
