I just accidentally ate uncooked chicken. Sigh. What happens now?

I made chicken strips in my oven -- typically these are pre-cooked and you are just heating them up, but I tried a new brand today. Put 'em in the oven at 400 for 20 minutes, took them out, and ate about 5 bites before I realized that the last bite had a weird consistency.
Looking more closely it was definitely undercooked chicken. It was a touch above lukewarm by feel, but had that kind-of-glassy look that uncooked chicken has... it was cooked enough so that my fork slices right through it.
Anything I can do now except ride it out? How long will it take before I know whether I got lucky or not? I am 36 and otherwise healthy so I assume this is not potentially life-threatening in anyway?
(i don't know if i am more mad about eating the chicken or having to waste my askme question!)
