I bought it some time early last week, but due to complications it never got cooked. It is a sealed plastic package. It was on sale for .99/lb., so I won’t be heartbroked the throw it out, but I’d like to eat it if it’s safe.
If it was just in one of those plastic wrapped packages, I might have smelled it…but it in a very nicely sealed plastic skin. If I had opened it and it was bad, I would have had an open package of bad chicken to deal with for a week. As it is, it is sitting very quietly on the bottom shelf of the fridge, still wrapped, waiting for trash day on Tuesday to go become immortal in a landfill.
I wouldn’t know how to begin answering this question, since when I grill legs/thighs they don’t last long enough to worry I grilled legs last night too. YUM.
