How long can I keep raw chicken in my fridge before it goes bad?

Sorry for the stupid question. I defrosted it on Friday, but didn't use it. Think it is still good?

  • Depends on how cold your fridge is. Even at one of the highest temp settings, our fridge likes to semi-freeze everything. So if your fridge stays relatively cold, I would smell it, and if it doesn't smell bad, i'd use it. If it doesn't stay super cold, i'd toss it.

  • put it in the freezer and thaw it when you're ready too cook it cause chicken won't last longer than a couple days in the fridge but it lasts for months in the freezer

  • Well, did you open the package? Does it smell? Today it MAY be ok but questionable. If it smells at all I would toss it.
