You can freeze it once you've cooked it.

Otherwise, everyone would have died in the fifties with the introduction of the TV dinner.

Most cooked foods will last at least a few days in the fridge. If in doubt, smell it.

Or do what people in the old days did, pour some salt on it =).

I've had cooked chicken breast for up to 5-6 days in the fridge before I eat it. If it goes that long I just make sure to microwave it and heat it throughly before eating it. Haven't go sick yet.

Rice should be fine for awhile. Atleast a week as long as its in a sealed container. Steak, who knows, its so tasty it doesn't last more then a few hours.

Fish, never stored. Its usually gross reheated so I only cook one portion of fish at any given time.
