BBQ Chicken - how long does it last?

I bought a store prepared cooked bbq chicken on Friday night. We ate parts of it over the weekend but I still have about half of it left in my fridge. Would I be able to eat it still today (Tuesday)? I was planning on shredding it into tortillas for some fajitas for dinner.

if it's not good, is it still soup worthy, or should I just toss the bird?

  1. I would say today would be the last day. I've always heard that 5 days is the maximum to keep leftover cooked chicken, so today would be the 5th day.
