The official line is always 3 days.  Unofficial probably a bit longer.  Only you know how long you have left it out and how well you cooked it.

Don't forget that you can freeze chicken/turkey that you have cooked. I did that last year and it was fine months later.  I'd have chosen to have done this earlier though. We also stripped the carcase earlier and made stock out of it.  (The slow cooker is the easiest way of doing this but I was away and forgot mine so went back to an ordinary saucepan which you have watch so that it doesn't boil dry.. and wreck your effort.)

This year we bought a turkey for 3-4 people for 5 of us because we like lots of vegetables and little sausages and bacon wrapped prunes etc etc. I cooked a second lot of stuffing to go with the cold turkey because although I can easily cook other dishes eg a curry or turkey and mushroom vol-au-vent or turkey fried rice we're very happy with sandwiches or cold meat and fried potatoes.

I'll let someone else will be able to tell you the longest they've braved eating the cold meat for - if you can believe them!

I think every year there are things you think that worked well this year and others you think you will do a little differently next year!
