Soup left out overnight
DH has a horrible cold, so yesterday I made a huge pot of chicken soup. We had it for dinner and I put the leftover soup in a covered bowl. It was too hot for the fridge, so I left it on the counter to cool. And then forgot it. Found it this morning. So, it was sterile from cooking, and out on the counter for 12 hours covered, and would be boiled again before serving. Do we dare eat it? Or must I assume that the chicken meat in the soup is irrevocably spoiled?
