How Long Does Raw Chicken Last in the Fridge?


In a refrigerator at a temperature of 40 degrees Fahrenheit or below, raw chicken can last one to two days. In a freezer set at 0 degrees Fahrenheit or below, raw chicken pieces can last up to nine months.

Under the given refrigerator temperature conditions, cooked chicken can last three to four days. Likewise, in a freezer set at the given temperatures, cooked poultry generally lasts two to six months.

It is important to avoid eating chicken that has been kept past these time limits. Eating spoiled food sources, such as poultry and other meats, can lead to food poisoning.
