How Do You Prepare Chicken Safely?
Do you know how to safely prepare your chicken before you eat it? Raw chicken carries bacteria that are harmful to human health.
Here are a few tips to keep you and your family in good health as you enjoy your delicious chicken dishes!
- Thaw frozen poultry in your refrigerator or in cold water, not on the countertop.
- Don't rinse raw poultry in your sink. It will not remove the bacteria, but the raw juices will spread it into your sink and onto your countertops.
- Bacteria in raw poultry can only be killed when cooked to at least 165 °F internal temperature, as measured with a food thermometer.
- Poultry products should ALWAYS be cooked thoroughly. Unlike beef, there is no safe "rare" or "medium rare" option for poultry.
