Safety Tips for Cooking Chicken
- Wash your hands, cutting boards etc in hot soapy water immediately after they have been in contact with raw chicken.
- Keep one cutting board separate for preparing chicken & raw meat.
- Cook all chicken thoroughly. The best way of checking that chicken is cooked through is to use a meat thermometer. It should be cooked to at least 165 degree F internal temp.
- Refrigerate any uneaten chicken within two hours of cooking. Leftovers can be kept in a refrigerator and will be safe to eat for two or three days.
- A number of these recipes can be batch cooked and frozen, but you will need to check the individual recipe to make sure.
