Chicken should be well wrapped and kept cold at all times – either in the fridge or the freezer.

Place raw chicken on the bottom shelf in your fridge so that it does not drip onto other foods.

Freeze your chicken unless you plan to use your chicken within a couple of days of purchasing it.

Cooked chicken should be stored in airtight containers in the fridge and consumed within a couple of days. It is safe to freeze cooked chicken.
