In brief: Most likely OK

Consuming undercooked chicken not necessary will make you sick.
.Unless the checkened is contaminated. Even with some contamination, the stomach acid can generally handle that for you. If the contaminated with salmonella, staph aureus, or other nasty bugs, you may know as soon as 1-2 hours or up to 2 days later. After 2 days, likely ok. Consult doc if u get sick.. Stay well... Good luck..
