I cooked some chicken, ham and leek pie filling on Saturday afternoon but I ran out of pastry to use it all up, so I put the leftovers in the fridge. Today is Tuesday, so do you think I should use it? Chicken was fully cooked in the mix and will need to recook in the oven in the pastry.

  • Cool! Really very interesting reading the comments to this!

  • Chicken for that period of time should be fine; just always give it the smell and touch test if concerned.

  • l would use it,up to 3 days is suitable,thats the advice that was given to me.

  • Up to 3 days it should be ok. But if in doubt throw it out is my rule

  • I would furor if there is No smell at all

  • I would use it as long as it is within 3 days.

  • i would use it .

  • there are some good comments here

  • i dont think i would eat it

  • Agree with Scottie, after that our Border Collie has any leftovers, meat only no bones.

  • we try to keep to a three day rule – after three days it is out

  • yes it lasts for 3-4 days if cooked and covered properly

  • I have had leftovers in fridge longer than that and they were fine :)

  • it should be alright until tomorrow
