My whole chicken I just thawed in the fridge smells like gas/fart/ whatever you want to call it. The skin was not slimy and the color is good but now I'm not sure if the meat is fine?! Anyone have any tips?

Hmm, that really doesn't seem normal to me. I probably wouldn't use it. I think the nose knows. Raw chicken doesn't smell pleasant even if it's fresh but it shouldn't smell like a fart!

I would not use it. It should not smell that bad.

It should not have an actual smell. Maybe a little like a solid fat-- like if your oil solidified. I've raised and frozen my own chickens, and there should not be (and has never been) a strong smell. Sometimes chickens at the markets are old(er), but cold uncooked chicken should not have an odor. Maybe you bought an old chicken and brought it home and put it in the freezer.

I wouldn't eat it.

Guess what? Chicken butt. LOL









I'm so ashamed.
