Wow, I never thought of that. Forget my 'tomato sauce' suggestion above!!

I will readily admit to being one who pushes beyond expiration dates as much as possible.  No qualms whatsoever about using milk, cottage cheese, cream cheese, or yogurt beyond the date, and I will use canned stuff a year after the date.   However, I would seriously question the chicken enough to not eat it.  I have had food poisoning from restaurants twice and agree that it is cheaper to just buy another chicken.   


We have eaten week old chicken.  As long as it smells good, it is okay.

Re: Can I still eat a rotisserie chicken that has been in the fridge for a week?

Did I actually read correctly on this thread some advice to soak week-old chicken that has been cooked, warmed, cooled and stored in tomato for a few minutes to kill any chance of food poisoning? One of the biggest botulism scares in history occurred years ago involving a canned tomato product. Have never heard that tomatoes (canned or fresh) have some sort of disinfectant or food-preservative properties. More information can be found below and many other places on this subject: http://blog.foodnetwork.com/healthyeats/2010/08/17/canned-tomatoes-good-or-bad/

I know lot's of people that would eat it, my son for sure.

 

I'm phobic tho if I don't eat anything on the third day it gets tossed the next morning.

I addition to the safety issue, I would think the overall quality of the week old chicken would be enough to give me my answer.  Yes, it may still be edible, but I wouldn't think it would be a tasty product after that length of time.

I don't think the OP has been back since she posted.  I wonder what she ended up doing.

Maybe she ate the chicken and that's why she hasn't been back!

I am the OP. I cut it up and gave it to the dogs mixed in with their dry dog food. Appreciate all your replies!
