Default Fridge-life of chicken meat in vinegar

I posted before about immersing bite-sized chicken
meat in vinegar from a pickle jar. Someone suggested
that this can last several days in the fridge.
Unfortunately, I may intend to cook it in the next
few days, but may be delayed by upto 10 days or more.
So the meat sits in vinegar for a long time. I threw
a batch out today. What a waste. I wonder if the
salty vinegar might not make the chicken last much
longer than several days. Any knowledge about this
out there in web-land?

Chicken soaked in vinegar doesn't sound good at all. Why would you do
that? It doesn't sount too safe, either. If you want to save cooked
chicken, wrap it up well and freeze it.

It gives it a bit of a zing in stir-fry. And it's flavoured vinegar.
Not bad at all. The thing about cooking and freezing it is that
I don't anticipate having evenings tied up for days on end, which
is why it goes uncooked for days on end. And the freezing, well
I defrost it with the mistaken anticipation that I will cook in in
the next few days.

Kind of curious why immersing the chicken bits in vinegar sounds
unsafe?
