Why does cooked chicken smell bad after being refrigerated?

Bidnezz | Apr 20, 2007 07:27 AM

I cook chicken breast at home and then take the leftovers to work. I usually put it on a salad, and often when I open up the container to eat my lunch it smells almost sulphuric. I've noticed this before, even when the chicken has been marinated or cooked in sauce. Is there a reason this happens? Is it unhealthy? Thanks!
