Best Instant Pot Whole Chicken Recipe (20)
Any leftover cooked chicken from the Instant Pot can be safely stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container for 3 to 4 days. The leftovers can be used for sandwiches, pasta dishes and salads. The chicken bones can also be stored in an airtight container for the same amount of time to be added to stocks with aromatics such as onions, garlic and other vegetables.

How long can cooked chicken stay in the freezer?

As long as cooked chicken has not been left at room temperature for two hours or more, it can be safely stored in the freezer for up to 3 to 4 months. Leftovers should be stored in a freezer-safe container or zip-top bag, and it’s always a good idea to label the container with the date before placing it in the freezer.
