Should I throw out all of the meat?

I just purchased some chicken, and was browning it in some butter. I added a piece I found in refrigerator and the pot started smelling sour so I took all of the chicken out. The piece I added from my refrigerator smelled sour, so I threw it away, tossed out the butter, washed the pan, added new butter, put the other pieces of chicken back in and they smell fine but should I just throw those away as well?

Chicken is cheap, emergency rooms are expensive, buy new.

Waste not want not. Feed some to your spouse. If there is no adverse reaction, go ahead and let everyone else have some.

I concur with Beefy I just need to let some chicken mellow for a month.
I was married by a judge, I should have asked for a jury.
