I used to not be so food safety obsessed until I had kids (3 yr & 7 months). But now that I'm feeding them I'm always terrified of giving them food poisoning because yeah, vomiting kids = no fun.

Cooked some chicken drums in the slow cooker on high for 4 hours. Cook time ended at about 11:30 pm. Asked my husband to pack it up (7 month old wanted to nurse and I was tired) he agreed. Went down to make breakfast in the AM at 7:15 - chicken was still in the slow cooker (he basically had a sleep convo with me and has no memory of this conversation). So it sat on warm for about 8 hours.

Chicken drum temp was at about 160- 165. Liquid I had cooked the chicken in was at 170. The plan was to then broil the chicken tonight and reduce the sauce to glaze it with.

Safe? Would you eat/serve? If it were just me and my husband I'd probably eat. But they say from a slow cooker perspective you shouldn't keep it on warm for more than 4 hours.
