Food Handling Tips For Chicken
Rinse and pat chicken dry. You can actually rinse away some of the bacteria that may be present.
The safest way to defrost a frozen chicken is in the refrigerator. This method will take the longest, about 5 hours per pound. So plan on leaving a 3 to 4 lb. chicken overnight in the fridge. Remember to place a pan or dish underneath the chicken to catch any drips that will occur as the bird defrosts. You don’t want chicken juice to contaminate other food in your refrigerator.
Prevent cross contamination by being mindful of every surface/utensil the chicken/juices touch. From the point that you remove the wrapping on the chicken to even where you set the chicken, each surface/sink must be washed with soap and hot water.
Have two cutting boards, one for produce cutting and one for meat and fish. This too will help in preventing cross contamination.
It’s advisable to put a little bit of disinfecting bleach in your soapy water in the sink to wash the cutting board, knife, counter, and anything that has come in contact with the chicken.
Don’t forget to wash your hands too after handling the chicken before you touch any other foods.
You also might consider wearing disposable latex gloves if you have any cuts on your hands to avoid getting any bacteria in them.
So that’s it for my safety tips. This is the routine I follow and I’ve never gotten anyone sick. Use your best judgment and enjoy the recipes.
