Ready Prepared Chicken
When purchasing fully cooked rotisserie
or fast food chicken, be sure it is hot at time of purchase.
Use it within two hours or cut it into several pieces and refrigerate in
shallow, covered containers.
Eat within 3 to 4 days, either cold or reheated to 165 °F (hot and steaming).
It is safe to freeze ready-prepared chicken. For best quality, flavor and
texture, use within 4 months.
