    Help help did I wreck my dinner?

    Ok here is what is going on..............

    At 1 I put a banquet chicken and dumplings in my crockpot. I followed the directions for a 4 hour cook time and turned the crockpot on high. Around 4:45 I realized I needed to go get some bills paid so I turned it down to low so it would still stay warm while I was gone. Well instead of turning it down to low I turned it off and was gone for two hours alot longer then expected. When I came home I went to add the rest of the ingredients and realized it was off the food inside was still warm to the touch.

    So my question is this should I scrap it and not eat it so I don't get food poisoning or will it be ok?

    TIA

    I would still eat it. If it was still warm and covered, it should be fine.. it would be different if it had set out all day not being cooked.

    I think you're fine. It was still warm, covered. You should be just fine.

    Although I chicken and dumplings, and would probably eat them even if they were cold

    Thanks guys! This is why DB has forbidden me to make things that actually take measuring and effort when he can't be around...........I would burn down the apartment. Half the time my dinner gets destroyed by me.......
