They should still be fine, but I'd use them soon. USDA says 3-4 days for cooked chicken that has been properly refrigerated.

This site is an amazing help in the area of food storage:

As hardlikearmour says, in the case of your item, 3-4 days for cooked chicken parts.

Keep in mind that often something will still be safe, but as you keep it longer, it'll start to deteriorate, flavour-wise. Mind you, I'm of the opinion that most white meat chicken doesn't have much flavour anyway...
