Store fresh, raw chicken in its original unopened wrapper at 40°F or less, in the bottom, coldest part of the refrigerator. Store it there no longer than one to two days, and always be sure to cook or freeze raw chicken by the "use by" date on the label.
For longer storage, immediate freezing is recommended. To prevent freezer burn, wrap chicken in foil or other freezer wrap. Separate parts into individual meal-size portions before freezing, so you can later avoid defrosting more chicken than you need. Or try Foster Farms Fresh & Easy boneless and skinless chicken breasts and thighs, already individually wrapped for your convenience. Refreezing chicken is never recommended.
Cooked chicken should be wrapped securely before refrigerating or freezing. For optimum quality, follow the storage guidelines provided.
