Could be. I'm big proponent of the smell test. (as long as you trust your nose these days...)

It's cooked? Likely it's still good. Like the poster above said, take a whiff Smile

I wish I waited for more replies.
I dumped a full pan of good smelling chicken.

Well wrapped and sealed, especially on the back of the fridge is perfectly good.

It does tend to taste old though. Like shabbos chicken cooked on Fri, by Tues or maybe Wed it's pretty much done. It's safe to eat but it just gets this old taste.

We would still use it if it smelled good. Once cooked it doesn’t really go bad so fast but the taste won’t be as good as it was when fresh.

I know the official wisdom, but I trust my eyes and my nose. I wouldn't eat it cold though--I'd bring it to the boil for a few minutes.

I had hard boiled eggs in the fridge for a lot longer than was recommended. I used two on Monday for tuna salad and it was fine. By Tuesday the last egg had turned pinkish and was tossed without even getting a sniff test.

Otherwise it should be perfect for a week

I read somewhere that food can seem to be okay but still be deteriorating. There are some things I would still use after a week but chicken, meat or fish would not be among them...

I keep to a 5 day rule for chicken and meat. If I made it for Shabbos, we eat it through Tuesday night. Wednesday, if it's still around, it gets tossed. Even if it still looks and smells fine. It just isn't worth the risk. If you feel badly throwing food away (who doesn't?) you just have to try harder to use it up faster. I had a child hospitalized for food poisoning before. It isn't something you want to experience.

Same.
Wednesday is the cut off day for most Shabbat leftovers - definitely for chicken.
By Monday, if I see there are going to be uneaten leftovers I will try to freeze whatever I can to avoid wastage.
