Prefried chicken patties were irradiated at dose levels of 0, 2, and 4 kGy using $Co^{60}$ source and stored at $3{\pm}1^{\circ}C$ and $-10{\pm}1^{\circ}C$, separately for the evaluation of color and sensory characteristics. Irradiation dose of 4 kGy slightly darkened the internal color of chicken patties. Except for the internal portion of the frozen samples, an increase (p<0.05) in Hunter 'L' values was observed for both the surface and interior of patties during storage. Upon refrigerated storage, Hunter 'a' values, both on the surface and internally, decreased as the storage period progressed. Only storage period affected (p<0.05) the Hunter 'b' values of patty surfaces and interiors. No difference (p<0.05) in odor, taste, color, and texture of the patties was observed for irradiation dose and storage period as evaluated by triangle tests except between 2 kGy and 4 kGy irradiated samples before forzen storage.
