OK I'm being optimistic here - I just found some great Shallot-Vermouth-Thyme pan sauce (CI recipe) from roasted chicken I made 2 weeks ago. Is it still ok to use or are there billions of little toxic buggers multiplying in the chicken juices?

Well, two weeks seems pretty old. How was it made/stored? Even if its not poisonous, I would imagine the food may start to go rancid if there's chicken in it.

If you froze it: yes.

Fridge? Sink that shit.
