I have been marinating a large batch of chicken breast in eggs and spices. I'm going to put bread crumbs on them before cooking. I'm wondering, if I were to bread them and then seal them in vacuum sealer bags, how long would the uncooked meat be safe in the fridge after it has been vacuum sealed?
I think vacuum sealed raw chicken breasts in the fridge behave like not-vacuum-sealed chicken breast in the fridge because the meat is neither sterile nor less contaminated with bacteria than the non-vacuumed meat and there are surely bacteria that grow under anaerobic conditions. The meat will be safe for 2 days.
I wouldn't go much more than a week. When i worked in the restaurant biz that was generally the rule though we always sold out. If its going to be longer than that it needs to be frozen. If you see any darkening or discoloration its gotta go in the can. With chicken always better safe than sorry.
