Whenever you make chicken breast recipes, whether it's for a salad or a stir-fry, you want to be sure and handle the chicken properly, so you don't spread any bacteria. Some of the things you want to make sure to do include properly washing your hands before handling any chicken, meat or seafood. Be sure and wash your hands for at least 20 seconds. You also want to be sure and separate any chicken, raw meat, and seafood correctly to avoid cross-contamination which could cause the bacteria to spread from food to food or onto other services. Make sure to seal poultry, raw meat and seafood in separate containers stored at the bottom of the refrigerator to help prevent juices from dripping onto other foods. You also want to keep plates clean, never put cooked food on the same plate or any cutting board that was used for raw food without cleaning first. Always through away marinades and liquids used to marinade any poultry, raw meat or seafood. You should never reuse marinades on cooked foods, this goes for basting poultry, raw meat and seafood too, you should reserve some marinade before any raw meats are put in, that way you can use to baste while poultry is cooking. Make sure to properly chill raw food; that also goes for thawing poultry, raw meat, and seafood.

Don't wait too long to get meat into the freezer or fridge as this can result in bacteria growth. Make sure to freeze or refrigerate poultry, raw meat, and seafood within two hours of purchasing. You can do this by making your grocery shop the last stop on your list of errands to do. Try and always purchase your meat last. Consider this especially on hot days where the food might be spending time in a hot car. A good idea is to bring along an insulated bag with a freezer pack inside, so the meat is chilled right away.
