When to Refrigerate Chicken

Can I keep a piece chicken in my room overnight and eat it in the morning?

Not unless you keep your room at 40F (5C) or below.

We have been trying to imagine any number of scenarios why you can't slip into the kitchen in the morning and quietly take a piece of cooked chicken from the refrigerator and sneak back to your room for a quiet breakfast in bed that's entirely chicken.

Unfortunately, each scenario has a little dorm-sized refrigerator in your room or a super-cold air conditioning setting. In none of those scenarios does the chicken get above 40F until you're just about ready to eat it. In several, you are shivering like the dickens.
