  • I work in a deli and cook these all the time...and from what ive seen i would not keep it longer than 2 days after its cooked.

  • I wouldn't keep any left overs more than 2-3 days.

    I don't often buy them but they are good! The last time I had one was last winter when it snowed. We went to get some things at the store and bought one for a hot quick dinner. Yummy.

  • i find that after two days, it starts to smell weird. Rotisserie chickens are very moist & and bacteria like that. I always cut mine up right away & make chicken salad with the left overs for DH's lunch. Once it is mixed with mayo & a little vinegar, it will last for up to 4 days, but no longer!

  • I won't keep or use it past 4 days max.

    I don't typically buy them, but my Dad likes them and he will bring one over every once in a while for dinner (he usually eats with us).

  • 3 days MAX, and I make my own at home on the grill outside. Its EASY

  • They don't last past 3 days in our house, but I'd trust it for a couple of more days if it's been properly cooked and then refrigerated immediately.
    I never buy them because we have our own rotisserie and make our own.

  • If we don't eat it all in one meal, I use the rest the next day or freeze it - but we usually finish it in one meal.

    Very very rarely - I had DH pick one up the other night but before that we hadn't had one it at least a couple of years. I did learn that I will only buy them from 1 place anymore though (the one the other night was gross and super scrawny).
