How long can I leave raw food out?

I'm trying to be a bit stricter with my fussy girl, and it is helping.
However I'm a bit worried about leaving food down. She takes forever to decide to eat ..sniffs , leaves and maybe an hour later comes back and decides she wants it. Sometimes it only takes 20 mins and that's fine, but last night I went out..left her tea (with a babysitter) and realised she only ate when I returned.. 4 hours later! I realise that dogs will eat all sorts of rank stuff but I don't want to poison her (it was chicken /tripe mix)
Mornings she usually has chicken wings , evenings a mix of meats.
I'm reluctant to chuck it after 20 mins as I'd be wasting so much!

I always went by the human guidelines that once raw meat had sat at room temp for 2 hours it was no good to eat.

I have no science for that, though.
