It's not the butter I'd worry about, but the chicken stock would make me hesitant to serve it. How frustrating! I've done that a few times myself.

I'd eat it - but my kitchen is cold at night. Unless you have an Aga in there or live in a really warm climate I think it'll be OK

I just don't choose to serve other people in these cases. If there is any bacteria present it will have multiplied happily. Sometimes the bacteria is killed and sometimes the waste products from them are toxic and not killed. If it was only me, I might bring to a boil and simmer 15 min.

Yeah - I agree with those who are warning you. As frustrating as it is to toss a dish out - that soup is a fertile growing medium for wee nasty beasties. Less frustrating to throw it out than run the risk of poisoning your entire family. :-(

If it was only me - like nutcakes says, I'd bring the soup to a simmer for a minute or two and eat it.

What time did you finish making it? That may be the key, because it must cool anyway before you can refrigerate it.
