How long do you keep cooked rice and chicken in fridge?

What's the longest you keep these two in the fridge?

In a sealed small tupperware container or a plastic liplock bag.

Until the smell of the mold makes me sick! lol

Really... I wouldn't leave it for more than three or four days.

Yes, I'd say about 3 days like everyone else. And the smell will knock you down! lol ...at least that's what I've been told

If the smell isn't strong stick your nose very close to it and take a good whif - you'll know. And if the rice is separate from the chicken it doesn't hold up well after 2 days in my opinion. It gets too hard and can't be revived very well.

Dove, you still have that chicken and rice from when you and Paul were first married???? I told you to throw that stuff away.

(I narrowly escaped the woodshed today didn't I!!!! I wouldn't have posted that moose nose recipe for anything - nor would I post the other stuff I saw - it was n-a-s-t-y)

Thumbs up

I found this chart at the National Sanitation Foundation. It probably could not hurt for most of us to have this chart in our kitchens. Very good question, MLB.
