HANDLING AND PREPARATION

Cooking Tips

Buying
    • When purchasing any chicken, be sure to pick it up at the end of your shopping experience.
    • Use a plastic bag, often found just a few feet away, to pickup and transport the chicken. This will protect other items in your cart.
    • Try to head straight home to keep the chicken cold and place in your refrigerator right away.
    • Look for product that is still within the use by date
    • When purchasing larger quantities, what you do not use within two days, portion and freeze quickly for a later date.

Handling
    • Always store chicken below 40 degrees Fahrenheit. Above 40F, bacteria begin to grow and will spoil the chicken.
    • Use any chicken within two days of purchase.
    • When preparing
      • Use a paper towel to pat dry any chicken. Do not wash in the sink as it will spread bacteria to your sink.
      • Use dedicated meat and poultry cutting surfaces and utensils to avoid cross contamination
      • Wash all surfaces after handling raw chicken but before handling cooked to avoid contamination
    • Cook to an internal temperature of 165 degrees fahrenheit for boneless items and 180 degrees Fahrenheit for bone-in items.
