Is it safe to eat this chicken?

I cooked a whole chicken and forgot to refrigerate it, so it stayed in the oven all night. Is it okay to feed it to my family for dinner tonight?

I will have to say that it's not safe to eat the chicken. The chicken had been left outside for so many hours, and most likely there will be some bacteria on it. It's not worthwhile to eat the chicken and then got various problems such as food poisoning or diarrhea.

I agree don't eat it. They say most meat only has a life of say a couple hours before bacteria start to grow. Don't feel bad about wasting it as it happens to everyone and you don't want to make anyone ill either.

do not suggest to eat it. Many nutrition had already run off at least, and many bacteriums were on it now, it would be better to throw it way, one chicken is worth little money, in case having diarrhoea, you have to buy medicine or go to see the doctor, keep healthy is the most important.

All Non-vegetable items should be eaten as fresh-cooked. They should not be eaten at late time. It will cause digestive problems. Don't take and give it your family for dinner. It is not safe to eat chicken which is not refrigerated. Always eat fresh food as well as fresh-chicken because "Health is Wealth".
