Here's How Long A Rotisserie Chicken Stays Edible In The Fridge

Rotisserie chicken is one of the most cost-effective food items available at grocery stores, but its size inevitably leads many to ask just how long any leftovers are safe to eat.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, a rotisserie chicken will last up to four days in a fridge set at or below 40 degrees Fahrenheit.

The exact time your chicken takes to spoil can vary depending on how long it sat out on the heating display, and whether it was warm enough to prevent pathogens from spreading.

Consider how long your cooked chicken has been left out at room temperature. Any longer than two hours puts you at risk of food poisoning, so try to store any leftovers quickly.

The time frame also gets cut down to 60 minutes if the weather's above 90 degrees Fahrenheit, so keep that in mind if you're commuting a considerable distance to get your bird.
