Q: how long does chicken last when not refrigerated

To keep hot foods safe, keep them at 140 degrees F or above. Cold food must be kept at 40 degrees F or below (in the refrigerator or freezer). Bacteria grow rapidly between 40 and 140 degrees F. Discard all perishable food left at room temperature longer than 2 hours; 1 hour in air temperatures above 90 degrees F. Use safely refrigerated food in 3 to 4 days; frozen leftovers, 1 to 2 months. This includes cooked chicken. !
