NO, you can, but this is a perfect breeding ground for bacteria that cause food-borne illness. Remember that even potentially fatal food-borne illnesses don't change the appearance or taste of the food, so even if it looks and smells "okay," please don't eat it! The danger zone for food is 4°C to 60°C (40°F to 140°F). When it has been in that range of temperatures for four hours or more it is not safe to eat. When food has been left out over night the only thing to do with it is throw it out in the morning and start again.

A heating stove can be kept on all night. Just make sure to keep anything flammable a safe distance away.

A chicken can be cooked on a stove in a few ways. These methods can be sauteeing, steaming, broiling, boiling, braising, baking, and frying.

If they were throughly cooked the night before, and the stove was off all night, they should be fine.

You can heat it in a pot over the stove until it gets more condensed, which can be indicated by the color and taste. By reducing a liquid, you are essentially cooking out--or evaporating-- the water. Just keep heating it over the stove and the water will steam and leave the liquid, leaving behind the chicken stock and salt (and everything else in the stock that isnt water).

You can't cook chicken in the fridge. Chicken is cooked on the stove top, grill, oven, deep fryer or slow cooker.

Yes. You can eat left over Pizza. Only if you put it in the refrigerator. If you leave it out like on the stove or something you might get sick.

Chicken tenders will need to be fried in hot oil. The chicken tenders will need to be cooked on each side for about 6 -7 minutes.

Yes. Try microwaving, heating in a skillet on a stove, or in an oven.

To fry your chicken, fill your pot with oil, heat it to 375 degrees Fahrenheit, add chicken and maintain the temperature at 300 degrees Fahrenheit as the chicken fries.

The easiest is to throw on some tortillas and cheese on the stove. Toss the chicken on them and finish off with some veggies and you've got great chicken tacos.

Well, I do not think you can make a fire, but you can cook on the stove without any cooking skills, then leave and the food will burn and probably, burn the stove too, and eventually spread all over the house (do not call the fire department or buy a fire alarm).

Yes. Spaghetti sauce can spoil if left sitting on the stove at room temperature overnight.

No. You are not crazy. Potentially hazardous food should not be left unrefrigerated for more than 2 hours. At that point, it should be reheated or placed in the refrigerator.

User Avatar

Yes, until it is cool. Then place in the fridge.

never, ever!!! it is very dangerous to leave a hot plate or even a cooking stove unattended !!

Assuming you mean on the walk itself, yes provided it is self-sealing or screwed to the stove, and without leaks.
