Chicken soup left out overnight

I made a big pot of chicken vegetable soup using a few
chicken tenders (no bones, fat or skin) and forgot about
it in the cooling process. Discovered it next morning.
Is it safe to boil and eat it?

No.

Its never safe to boil something that's been left in the danger zone (40 - 140) that long.

Sorry but it needs to go down the drain and the remains into the trash. It is far to risky to even feed to your pet (if you have one).

It is better to throw it, and don't forget next time.

Whenever I leave something on the counter to cool in the evening, I leave a light on in the kitchen so I won't forget and leave it out all night.

Hmmm...when I lived in Germany, leftovers were put in the laundry room. I didn't die. We only had a bar-sized fridge. Mind you, the house also didn't have central heat. So nighttime temps in that room were probably around 38-40 at this time of year.
