I was sharing my chicken and avocado salad with my baby at a restaurant. We ate most of it until I noticed that a bit of the chicken was raw!!! What should I do?!? Can I give him grapefruit seed extract? I am completely freaking out. I'm going to give him some probiotics.

When I read the title of your thread, I thought you were concerned because your baby ate half of a cooked chicken...I was coming to commiserate that my 2 y.o. will eat 2 steaks in a sitting.

I have no advice about the raw chicken. If it were my kid, I would try watchful waiting (and maybe a call to the nurses line if you have access to one just to be sure you know the signs of salmonella, etc.).

My infant was exposed to raw chicken and did develop samonella.

Per our ped, for individuals over 6 mos. of age, you just let it run it's course and push fluids to avoid dehydration. Our dd was really sick for a week, but, recovered fully & is now a healthy 7 yo.
I hope your lo is spared and develops no symptoms! Good luck!
