Posted by jazzie (My Page) on

We eat a lot of chicken breasts over a weeks time.. I would like to cook up a ton and seal it in a big bag in the friedge so we can just open bag, toss in a pan to warm up with whatever type of seasoning we want at that time.. Will it keep the chikcen good in the fridge for a week?? In general how do meats hold up to vacumming?

RE: Vacumm sealing cooked chicken??

The same principals apply to refrigerated meat, without regard to whether it is in a vacuum-sealed bag, a plastic zip-lock bag, or some sort of container. Vacuum-sealing doesn't give meat a longer refrigerator life, like it does things like lettuce. It's frozen meat that has an extended life.

Cooked Meat, Poultry, and Fish Leftovers
Pieces and cooked casseroles 3-4 days
Gravy and broth, patties, and nuggets 1-2 days
Soups and Stews 3-4 days
