Tips for cooking chicken

  2. 2. Don't wash raw chicken Washing chicken can spread bacteria like salmonella around the kitchen. Instead, gently pat raw chicken with a paper towel to remove excess moisture and cook it to a proper temperature to eliminate any bacteria.
  3. 3. Select the right type of chicken  Chicken breast dries out easily, so it’s better to use in quick cooking dishes. Chicken thighs are better to use for longer cooking dishes because their higher fat content helps it retain moisture.
  4. 4. Check internal temperature While clear juices and no more pink color to the chicken are good things to look for, the only way to truly know a chicken is fully cooked is to take the internal temperature. Properly cooked chicken should have an internal temperature of at least 165 degrees.
  5. 5. Don't overcrowd pan In order to obtain a perfectly brown sear on the chicken, use a pan large enough to cook all of the chicken at once while leaving space in between, or cook in batches so that the pan is not overcrowded.
