Cooked chicken left out over night

    I cooked a couple of chicken breasts last night, left them on a plate covered in tinfoil but left them out in the kitchen overnight. They went into the fridge at about 6 this morning.

    Whats your thoughts on eating these - I am assuming they are ok but I have my mothers voice in the back of my head shouting I'll die and grow a third eye if I get them
    Whats you thoughts?

    The mods will be here soon and say that food safety advice is not allowed in this form :)
    Having said that, my mother would still eat them while I would bin them immediately!

    I'd regularly do the same. No issue whatsoever.

    They’d be absolutely fine, in fact I wouldn’t have even put them in the fridge because it tends to harden them a bit much. Slice them up, bit of brown bread, lettuce, mayo and tomato in a sandwich for lunch. Be grand.

    I leave them out to cool often.

    Any snow flakes in here say they were going to call the SPCA over cruelty to leaving chicken out over night?

    Mod note: OP, you're asking for advice on something that could potentially cause you to get very sick, from people who can't see or smell the chicken, nor do we know what ambient temperature your kitchen is at, or a multitude of other factors that may influence the safety of the food.

    As per our charter, the only food safety advice that we allow on this forum is "If in doubt, chuck it out".
