Is this chicken safe to eat?

We bought a rotisserie chicken from a grocery story this afternoon, and upon returning home, stuck it directly in the fridge (totally didn't think anything of it at the time, lots of distractions with small children and such). It dawned on me that it may have been a bad idea when I pulled it out to start cutting it up and realized that it most certainly wasn't cold. I put the bird in the fridge about 3 hours ago. In an effort to keep from making my family sick, should we eat this chicken?? Everything I see online says that chicken should be cooled before refrigerating, but I've never done this before and can't find anything that says whether or not we should eat THIS bird.
