Frequently Asked Questions
Is Chicken Gluten-Free?
The bigger question should be "Is meat gluten free?". Chicken naturally is gluten-free, but you need to watch out for added fillers. Sometimes processing plants will inject ingredients into the chicken to make it bigger or juicier. Always check packaging labels to make sure no gluten ingredients were added to the chicken.
How long does chicken stay good?
You can store raw chicken carefully wrapped for 1–2 days in the refrigerator. If you have leftovers that include cooked chicken, you can expect those to last in the refrigerator for 3–4 days.
Can you freeze chicken?
Yes, freezing chicken is a great option for storing it. Make sure it's wrapped tight, or in an airtight container, to prevent freezer burn. We like to use a food saver when storing chicken in the freezer.
