How to keep things clean
Always keep your kitchen and utensils clean when working with chicken.
- Never let raw chicken come into contact with other food, whether it’s cooked or uncooked.
- Use a separate chopping board and knife when you work with raw chicken to prevent cross-contamination (when germs are unintentionally transferred from one substance or object to another).
- Wash everything that comes into contact with raw chicken with hot, soapy water – this includes your hands, chopping boards, dishes, knives, kitchen cloths and any surfaces.
- Make sure your chicken is cooked through properly to kill any harmful bacteria
