    Chicken

    Hey guys!

    I took chicken breasts out of the freezer at about 11am this morning to defrost...

    They have been left on the bunker for 7 hours now

    Will they be ok to eat or have they been out for too long??

    None of the mothers are answering the phone either

    Cheers

    Cook it, feed it to Saxo, wait a few hours then you can eat it...

    They will be fine. I eat it like this all the time.
    As long as it looks and smells alright then its usually fine.

    yes thats fine just make sure you cook it properly the last thing you want is having them undercooked.

    This reminds me of when I first met my OH, I'm from Dundee and he's from Glasgow so the twang is obviously very different.

    I can remember coming to Glasgow and staying at the flat he shared with his friend, I had made dinner or something and gave the kitchen a quick clean and said to his friend "I even cleaned the bunkers down" he laughed and said "when the feck did we get a bunker".

    He also used to think it was funny that he could dip his tae in the tay and that he nearly spilt peh doon his teh.

    But its 7 years later and I don't talk like that anymore.

    Not a great idea IMO. By the 'bunker' do you mean outside on a coal bunker - I'd imagine a few birds/rats etc have inspected it if that's the case.

    In future, cover it and put it in the fridge to defrost over night.

    u can just defrost it in a sink overnight i always do this with chicken and it wont go off in a day lol

    Why do it that way when you can do it in the fridge and ensure the chicken is at a safe temperature at all times?

    can someone who has graduated to the big city of glasgow from the great unwashed outpost of I presume dundee translate and please tell me what a "bunker" is.

    worktops and its Arbroath lol

    I never defrost chicken in the fridge. Just leave it on the counter and it'll be fine. Bacteria can't survive the cooking process, so no big deal.

    So, you reckon it's good idea to allow it to breed bacteria in the first place? Peculiar answer.

    All good practice advice is to defrost in the fridge, that's what every place I inspect are told.

    Bacteria can breed in the fridge. Most people don't have their fridge any lower than 2 degrees so they are still going to grow.

    lol I wondered what it was too - I had visions of the chicken sitting outside on top of a 40yr old coal bunker!

    So...basically what you're saying is that it's pointless having a fridge or freezer? Have you gone back to the old days where you stick everything in a bucket of salt in the pantry!!!

    Tell me, what food poisoning bacteria is it your concerned about with this magical 2 degrees figure you're plucked out of the ether?

    Some crazy opinions on this site.oO

    BRB - just away to rub my steak with a culture of E.coli O157 and see if it all gets killed off when I cook it - here's hoping I don't end up in hospital with major organ failure!

    worktop is the worst place to defrost food. fridge is the safest option.
