Best Way to Cook Your Chicken!


Chicken is a versatile protein that can be cooked in many ways. Whether you prefer your chicken grilled, baked, fried, or roasted, it's essential to ensure that it's cooked properly to avoid any potential health risks. In this blog post, we'll go over some tips on the proper way to cook chicken.

1. Thaw the chicken

If you're using frozen chicken, it's important to thaw it properly before cooking. The best way to thaw chicken is to leave it in the fridge overnight. If you're in a hurry, you can also thaw chicken in a bowl of cold water. Never thaw chicken at room temperature, as this can promote the growth of bacteria

2. Work in a clean environment

Before cooking, make sure to clean your work area and equipment thoroughly. Use soap and water to clean all surfaces, including cutting boards, utensils, and countertops. This will help prevent cross-contamination, which can cause foodborne illness.

3. Cook the chicken to the right temperature

Chicken should always be cooked to a minimum internal temperature of 165°F (74°C). To measure the temperature, use a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the chicken. Be sure not to touch the bone, as this can give a false reading. If you're cooking bone-in chicken, the temperature should be measured near the bones.

4. Rest the chicken before serving

After cooking, let the chicken rest for a few minutes before cutting or serving. This will help the juices redistribute, resulting in a juicier and more flavorful chicken.
