Don’t Rinse the Meat…………

While salmonella and other bacterial scares may tempt you to give your raw meat a quick rinse, it’s not recommended. For one thing, water won’t remove many dangerous pathogens in the first place. For another, running water over raw poultry and other meat may also contaminate your sink and other kitchen surfaces with bacteria. If you’re worried about foodborne illness, the best measure to take is cooking your meat thoroughly and testing it with a meat thermometer—at least 145° F for steaks, roasts, chops, and fish; 160° F for ground beef or pork; and 165° F for poultry.

Storing Chicken…….

Keep chicken from drying out in the refrigerator by keeping it tightly wrapped. If the chicken dries out, it will become tough.

Let the Chicken rest also…….

A roasted chicken will stay warm for 30 minutes out of the oven, and you need to let it rest for 20 of those minutes. Without rest the chicken is almost impossible to carve and you will lose an incredible amount of juice if you try to carve it too soon.

Cook Chicken Thoroughly……..

Chicken should always be cooked thoroughly. To ensure your chicken is fully cooked, follow the recommended cooking times, and make sure your chicken reaches the proper recommended internal temperatures listed below by using a calibrated meat thermometer. The USDA recommends that all chicken, regardless of cut, should reach a safe minimum internal temperature of 165° F.

Cutting Fat………..

Cut down on calories and fat by – Remove the skin from poultry. You can do so after cooking, since the meat doesn’t absorb much of the fat.

Grilling Chicken Breast……………

Chicken breast, as all chicken, needs to be cooked to a safe temperature of 165°F, so you should use a meat or instant-read thermometer to check that the chicken is done. Insert it into the thickest part of the thickest piece, and just be careful the tip of thermometer isn’t touching bone, which can give you a false reading. Enjoy the Chicken!
