Slightly paranoid: I cooked it Sunday- can I eat it tonight?

The subject basically says it all. I made chicken fajitas on Sunday night, and I'm slightly paranoid about eating food past its prime. I usually toss leftovers after 2 or 3 days....I don't want the food to go to waste, but I don't want to get sick. Am I okay if I just reheat it? Thanks.

    Your chicken is fine. Reheat and enjoy.

      live dangerously. Unless you've already reheated and cooled the same food more than 2x, scarf those suckers down.

      According to the USDA cooked chicken is good for 3-4 days.
