I did something yesterday most guys don't. I actually threw out a chicken breast because it didn't smell right. Ok, I didn't actually throw it out yet. And though it smelled funny that was not the only test I gave it.
I had the chicken breast thawing out since last Sunday. I ate some on Monday and Thursday but had the one breast left. This weekend I picked up some green peppers, garlic, and onion to toss around in the wok with the last piece of chicken. I felt more like cheeseburger yesterday and didn't think twice of the chicken going bad.
After some exercise, I bounded into the kitchen thinking of the stir fry and looking forward to it. That changed when I opened the plastic container. The smell was sour. I frowned and took another whiff thinking it may not be bad and I could work with it. Sure let's give it a shot, even though it looks dried out. I picked it up and changed my mind. There was a bit of slime on it. I can work with chicken that may smell a tad funny but I don't do slime.
I put it back in the container and tossed it back in the refrigerator like any guy would do. What am I suppose to do? Toss it in the garbage? The garbage does not need to be emptied and I don't want it to stink up the house. Toss the container? It is not a disposable container. It is one I like to use so that ain't happening. Hot water and soap will take out the slime.
Maybe I should have tossed it into a disposable container and dumped it on the way out to the garage this morning. Best of plans thought of 2 hours too late.
But give me credit for not eating the chicken, ok?
