Tips & tricks

Salmonella is bacteria found in raw poultry. One is susceptible to salmonella from not properly cooking the chicken or contamination caused by mishandling raw chicken, like washing the chicken while splattering the raw juices all over the counter, and not properly decontaminating your work area and properly washing your hands prior to touching other food items.

It would be be practice to thaw a frozen chicken slowly, overnight, in your refrigerator. If cooking a chicken for the first time, use a meat thermometer to make sure the internal temperature of the chicken will reach the proper tempearature,  74˚C (165˚F).
