Howlong does cooked chicken last in the fridge?

I bought some chicken wings and baked them. I put the leftovers in the fridge in a double zip bag. I realized just now that we forgot about them!
I opened the bag and smelled them and they smell fine and look fine. I hate to waste and I'd like to use them if I can. I think they've been in there for about a week...
I was thinking of making a soup with the meat. What do you think?
