Tips for Refrigerating Cooked Poultry

Serve poultry immediately after it's cooked to the proper temperature. Do not let cooked poultry stand at room temperature longer than 2 hours.

Always remove stuffing before carving the bird. Never leave stuffing in cooked poultry when storing in the refrigerator.

Slice large portions of leftover poultry into smaller pieces before refrigerating so they chill faster.

Leftover cooked poultry should be refrigerated and used within 3 to 4 days or frozen.
