Will my brined chicken go bad?

SanJoseSean | May 20, 2010 10:51 PM

I have a whole chicken (cut up) and 4 thighs in a brine solution of diced green onions and 3 tbsp of course sea salt in probably about 2 quarts (just enough to cover the chicken).

I was originally going to deep fry these up the next day, but didn't get around to it then nor today.

I'm wondering if they'll be fine on the 3rd day (honestly, I'd love to put it off until the 4th day but don't think I'll get away with that). They've been refrigerated the entire time and the whole chicken was bought refrigerated that day (the thighs were thrown in frozen).

Thoughts?
