Slightly stinky chicken... Am I crazy or is it okay?

SocksManly | Dec 2, 2008 04:31 PM

I have to admit, I'm a procrastinator of the highest degree. I end up letting stuff sit in the refrigerator for a few days on a regular basis.

So I have this good chicken I bought, and it was jussssst starting to have that stinky smell.. I cut it up, washed it up, and I didn't think it was that bad.. But if I was my mom, it would have been in the garbage for sure..

Am I risking something other than perhaps taste? I made sure I used a recipe where the chicken was cooked several times throughout the process (onion/wine/gruyere sauce, finished in the oven)
