I usually use it within a day or freeze it straight away. But i just noticed the chicken breast I got from Coles yesterday has an expiry date of 7th august!! Surely that's wrong?

I can't imagine chicken lasting that long uncooked :/

I'm really anal with food. Anything, cooked and especially uncooked has a 24 hour shelf life in our house, no matter the expiry, then it's turfed.
and I should add, if I freeze of course that changes. When I do a shop I divide the meat up, freeze and leave one portion for that night's tea. After things are defrosted it's the 24 hour rule

Chicken, either bough fresh or defrosted , once it is placed in the fridge should be used within 48 hours at most.

I use a chicken within 7 days after it was killed, as bacteria and histamines grow rapidly on dead chickens. I don't trust supermarket meat as its often vacuum wrapped for up to three months, so whilst it looks fresh it's not at all.
My local butcher has chicken deliveries from Lilydale Free Range every week day and the chooks are killed the day before delivery, and I always used it the same day I buy it. So usually it'd be the day after the chicken died, worse would be 3 days after it died if I buy on Monday morning before the new delivery arrived.
I always use it on the same day as bought. same with beef or any other meat or fish.
