Trang's corner: Deal with leftoverRoast chicken Roast chicken tastes super delicious when you first get it from grocery store. But in the next day, I don't really like its taste. So what I do is take the meat out of the bones and store them immediately in the fridge. Cooked meat can be stored in fridge up to 2-3 days. Next day, what I do is to shred chicken meat and prepare some lettuce, tomatoes, avocado, carrot and a salad dressing.
