    After getting my slow cooker i`ve been making my meals the night before
    then rewarming them in a microwave the next day at dinner time.
    My question is is this ok to do ?
    I reheated a chicken casserole today & about 3hrs later my stomach was
    making angry noises & i felt sick.
    My wife says you should never reheat chicken ?
    Any thoughts on this please folks

    I re-heat meals everyday for lunch with no problems.

    i reheat stuff all the time...usually use the microwave, sometimes the oven or stove. Never had a problem, not even with chicken. As long as it was properly prepared and stored, you should be fine.

    I've also never had any issues reheating any of my meals (and I reheat something every day). I'm guessing the culprit the something in the original meal, such as some of the ingredients you used.
    Try it out again with some other meals and see if you still feel affected :-).

    Yep. Or improper handling in the original meal. If it sat too long in the temperature danger zone (41-140F/5-60C) then you could've had some bacterial growth.

    My only peeve is reheating the same bowl multiple times in a day. I refuse to warm up my kid's food, put it in the fridge, then warm it up again. Not okay.
    Making food & warming up leftovers-- entirely different story.

    I re-heat food constantly (including chicken). It's a way of life for us (making big batches of things and then re-heating for lunches or dinners later in the week).

    With anything involving chicken in the crockpot, I always make sure it reaches a safe temperature before consuming, and I don't like to leave chicken cooking in the crockpot longer than necessary. I bring it up to a hot temp quickly and then cook it within a few hours. With beef or pork, I will do more of the low & slow method.
