Tell me about the danger zone

So I got a Rotisserie chicken from Costco at lunch today. It was hot then, but traffic was bad so it got home around 1. I didn't feel like eating right away so I stuck it as is in the fridge. Just got hungry around 3 and ate some, but I was surprised the inside was still warm. I temped it and it was 80 or so still in the middle. So it was probably in the "danger zone" for at least 3 hours and wasn't even getting close to 40 degrees. [more inside]

What can I substitute for brandy in this chicken recipe?

Hi AskMe, I need to make a chicken recipe that I've been given - it's a chicken stroganoff type thing. The recipe calls for 2Tbs of brandy. I don't have any brandy and I don't intend to buy some just to make this recipe. What can I substitute? I'm fine with alcohol, I'd just prefer a type I already own. [more inside]

Inherited Chicken Bricks

Roommate moved out, I inherited four 15-month-old boneless, skinless chicken breasts in the freezer. I'm going to assume they won't taste optimal. Actually, I'm expecting them to not be very palatable to me without major work. What can I do to these chicken breasts to cover up any "old chicken" flavors and textures, without drying them out? Taking any and all ideas. [more inside]

Can I eat this? (I'm going to anyway.)

I marinated four chicken breasts late yesterday, the recipe says to marinate for at least half an hour, but no longer than two hours. I accidentally left two breasts in the marinade overnight in the fridge. I will be cooking them for dinner tonight regardless, but should I expect a drastically different result because of the extra 12 hours in the marinade? [more inside]

Chicken Lovers Wanted

Nope, not looking for recipes just those that have or had chickens before. I have 11 three month old chickens. They have a large coop with more then enough space. I've had chickens for about three years and this is a new group as my others got decimated by a neighbors dog. The usual routine is that they spend the night locked safely in the coop, are let outside during the day and automatically return to the coop at dusk. They did this until a couple of weeks ago. Now instead of going back inside they roost on top of fence outside the coup and high up in a tree and it's incredibly difficult to get them inside. Any advice on how to get them to stop this?

What do I use to baste a roast chicken?

Vegetarian Roasting a Chicken-filter: I am making this recipe. In paragraph 4, it says to baste the chicken halfway through cooking, and add a splash of water if the veggies (underneath it) are dry. If the veggies are dry, I assume that means there are no juices in the pan, so...what would I be using to baste the chicken?

I have read conflicting reviews about cooking boneless skinless chicken breast in a slow cooker. I will be making apricot chicken in the crock pot tomorrow.

Pretty wide berth there. Any tips?
