I don't usually keep leftovers for more than 3 days. My roommate will eat things up to 5 days old but she seems to have a cast iron stomach. After it is more that a couple days old I have to make sure I heat it up really well to try and kill anything. But all my friends tell me I am overly paranoid about leftovers.

If you keep it wrapped, and sealed, it will keep for at least 4 days. Sometimes 5 if you do it well. Hope this helps, good luck.

If the meat is fresh and has been cooked at home, it can be kept safe in the refrigerator for a very short period of time that is between three and four days. On the other hand, the meat which is frozen and which has been cooked at home can be kept safe in the freezer (in other words, it can be frozen) for a longer period of time, that is between two and three months.

In the case of such varieties of meat as beef, lamb, pork or veal chops, steaks and roasts, if the meat is fresh and has been cooked at home, it can be kept safe in the refrigerator for a very short period of time, that is between three and five days. On the other hand, in the case of such varieties of meat as beef, lamb, pork or veal chops, steaks and roasts, the meat which is frozen and which has been cooked at home can be kept safe in the freezer (in other words, it can be frozen) for a longer period of time, that is between four months and three one year.

As long as it has remained in the fridge, I would think it would be good up to 2 days.  I am not sure I would trust it any longer than that.  Be sure to cook it thoroughly in any case.  If it has a odd smell, trash it.

Cooked chicken stays well in the fridge at least for 2 days.  Also, it depends on the type of cooking.  If you have made a dish with mayonnaise or a salad type of dish it will last for less time.  If it is a Indian curry it could last for a much longer time like say for about 4 days.  Also, when you remove the chicken from the fridge you must boil it well, don't just microwave the curry.  It should be heated on a gas stove.

Also, it should be stored covered with a foil paper that would make it last longer.

Depends what dish your chicken is in if a curry it can last for four nights be sure to heat it up properly on a stove though ! And same with chicken cajatorie anything that is a saucy dish four days is fine , but if its by itself or with salad something small its better you eat it within 2-3 days maximum just to be sure :)
