You’re right that it has to do with bacteria and not preservatives. As for whether it’s ok or not, I have no idea. If you are worried, you can always heat the chicken in the microwave before putting it on the salad.

@LoveMikey:  hi and congrats! 

The cooked chicken is not the same as cold cuts. Cold cuts are processed with preservatives and nitrates, so the chance of listeria is higher.

I would have no qualms about eating cooked chicken that i made at home!

If you dont want the chicken, pass it on over here for my DH 🙂

Perfectly OK to eat. Its the handling during processing and the length of time it sits that increases the risk of listeria. Not the simple fact that it is “cold meat”.
