Is this chicken ok?

I had the bird thaw in the fridge for 2 days then had it in the sink in cold water for an hour... I then forgot about it and it was in the sink for 3 hours. Is it ok to cook or should i throw it out?

  • Does it smell bad? Was it sitting in the water while in a bag or floating in water? You should tie a string around your finger so you won't forget :) lol

  • Try to set a timer next time. But I would think it would be OK to still eat. I'd ask my husband (he's really the cook of the family, especially when it comes to meats), but he's trying to sleep ATM :(
