This question already has an answer here:
I put 5 pounds of cold chicken in my crock pot at about 2 am. I had put lemon pepper and salt in with it. I got up this morning about 9:30 or 10 and discovered that it seems my slow cooker broke right after I put it on last night. It smells fine and it is cold. I drained the water and washed it. Then put it in regular oven at 350. Is it safe to eat, if it smells and tastes ok?
