    I want to make a big pot of rice for the week and store it in the fridge. How long will it last before it's unedible? Same question for chicken and tuna fish

    I've done that for a few months, but I'd rather keep it in the fridge if possible.

    Chicken will stay good/edible 2-3 weeks, same with rice.

    Just smell it and taste it. They'll both start to smell somewhere between fruity pebbles and pineapple when they start to go bad. The chicken will get slimy, rice too depending on what kind you have. I'd say 4-5, but i'm pretty anal about that stuff, it can last a little longer maybe.

    maybe you don't like to let it get older then 3 days, but i assure you it still fine after at LEAST 5-7 days. Rice will last a week and a half easy.

    a week and a half is starting to push it, but most of the time wont start to smell till about the two week mark.


    this is obviously assuming it lives in a nice cold fridge. if you leave it out long enough to warm, or your fridge isnt cold, the time goes way down.

    4 days tops for chicken cooked.

    Rice have done past a week without a problem.

    If you are getting close throw them in individual tupperware containers in the freezer. Grab as needed.

    Definately check your cooler, the closer you keep the food to just above freezing the longer it will last. You want it between 33 and 39 degrees. Ice bags help.

    chicken will last about a week in the fridge.
    just put it in the freezer and thaw as needed.

    I posted some links with answers, stop guessing...
    Poultry fresh = 1-2 days
    Poultry cooked = 3-4 days
    Cooked rice may be stored in the refrigerator for 6 to 7 days or in the freezer for 6 months.

    I knew it would happen... It's the suggested guidelines but no ones gonna die if he eats it past this time. Everyone's telling something different from 3 days up to 3 weeks so it's nice to have at least a guideline instead.
    I would personally go up to 5-6 days with chicken and rice it depends on the smell so maybe 5 days.
