a whole chicken was cooked yesterday morning and then not eaten.
it has been left in the oven, is still there now.
is it suitable for tonights tea or should it have been refrigerated?

not sure - smell it ...

i think if it was in a warm oven then it may have "gone"

No, I wouldn't trust it. It needed to go in the fridge as soon as it was cool yesterday morning. You could get lucky, but chicken is pesky for nasty bacteria, so if people are poisoned they will be really horribly ill - not worth it.

agree with thebecster - i wouldn't chance it. i chanced a lamb chop a few months ago and will never ever ever do that again just to save a few quid.
