chicken kiev/pink chicken

mmm i had a chicken kiev for tea (diet has gone completely out of the window this weekend :rolleyes:) and when i was half way through eating it (i was too busy watching the tv), i noticed that the chicken wasn't fully white. it was kinda pink =/

it was cooked for 5 minutes longer than it should have been and it was hot all the way through.

will i be ok? :( im worried. as soon as i noticed it, i stopped eating it.

it wasn't pink PINK, it just wasn't white.
Beep boop. I'm a bot.

    Might be a bit dodgy, you might get away with it. You'll soon find out either way :thumb:

    I should expect you will be fine, as the chicken is probably pre-cooked anyway.

    Also you'd probably have noticed by now.

    will it have been precooked if it was fresh? the chicken kiev was from the fresh section, not frozen.

    im such a worrier!

    itwas probably reformed from a darker piece of meat

    It should be totally fine. My mum has done that before and she was fine.

    Yep. Thigh meat can be very pink, though thoroughly cooked. Have a look next time you cook a whole chicken. Also some breast meat can be dark, if it's been near the bone or blood vessels, after it's cooked.

    well, nothing has happened and i ate hours ago so hopefully i'll be ok.

    apparently food poisoning can take up to 48 hours to appear though :nervous:

    I once tucked into a Lidl kiev after about 25-30mins in the oven...only for it to be half frozen still.

    Gutted.

    You'll be fine, I was.

    I ate half then got to the middle and suddenly it was raw and still fozen! Some was swallowed some spat out but I survived.
