Storage of cooked chicken

Leftovers should be stored in the fridge immediately or frozen if more than  one to two days' storage is required.

Place leftovers in the refrigerator after steam has evaporated.

  • To cool large quantities quickly, divide into smaller portions and refrigerate.
  • Re-heat leftovers to at least 70ºC for a minimum of 2 minutes.

There is also a handy full colour Food Safety Flyer available for download; print it off and stick it on the fridge!
