  • it might take an hour or two or even three to cool off.. don't leave it out overnight. chicken broth goes bad if left out too long. not worth the possible food poisoning..

  • You can put it in an ice bath. That will bring it down to a good temp to put in the fridge. If any type of meat is in the danger zone for over two hours it will cause food poisoning. Good luck.

  • I would not leave anything with meat or dairy overnight. Stick it in the crockpot and let it cook all night.

  • Yes it will go bad overnight! Cool it down as fast as you can break it up into small bowls and put it in some ice bath water and stir constantly making it cool down. As a food Service supervisor people tend to think that they can just leave food out after you have left something out for more then 2 hours it is now no good and must to thrown out. You could get food poisioning out of this and you don't want your family sick
