Does chicken soup go bad if not refrigerated?

Yes, it certainly can. How soon depends on the temperature of the room but should be cooled quickly and immediately placed in the fridge where it can be stored for a day or two at the most, or frozen for longer. Chicken is especially susceptible to the bacterias that cause food poisoning.
