Quick Tips and Ideas for Cooking Chicken

  • Rinse chicken with cold water and pat dry with paper towels before preparing. To prevent contamination, be sure to clean all surfaces, utensils, dishes and cutting boards that come in contact with raw chicken.
     
  • When cooking chicken in a pan or skillet, make sure not to crowd the chicken. Leave space between the pieces to allow for uniform browning and cooking.
     
  •  If you marinade chicken before you cook it, be sure to throw the marinade away or create a new one for the cooked chicken. Never reuse marinade that touched raw chicken.
     
  • If you have leftovers, cut the chicken breasts into strips and keep in the fridge. You can use them the next day on a salad, in a sandwich, for tacos or on a pizza.
