How to Store Leftover Chicken

Before we show you what to do with all that leftover chicken you just need to make sure that you store it safely until you need it. It’s pretty simple:

  • Once the steam has evaporated pop the chicken into a container with a lid and put it in the fridge.
  • If you’re not going to use the chicken within two days store it in the freezer instead.
  • Always make sure the leftovers are defrosted thoroughly before you use them either in the fridge or the microwave.
  • Cook the chicken until it’s piping hot and then make sure you don’t reheat it again.
