When making this chicken breast recipe or another recipe that uses poultry you will want to practice proper safety tips. Cooking food at high temperatures usually kills any bacteria that is contained in the food itself. However, it doesn't help to control the bacteria that may have spread to your refrigerator, the kitchen counters or utensils while the poultry was being stored or prepared. When shopping for chicken breasts make sure to buy cold or frozen food at the end of your shopping trip. Always check the best before the date on fresh chicken breasts. Although these dates do not guarantee the product safety, they do give you all the information about the freshness and the potential shelf-life of the unopened foods you are buying. Check to make sure that raw chicken breasts are securely packaged so that any juices are contained. The poultry package should not be ripped or leaking. Place the poultry in a separate plastic bag at the bottom of the cart to prevent it, or its juices, from making contact with other items in the grocery cart.

Be sure to keep your raw chicken breasts cold. Bacteria can grow rapidly at room temperature. When you buy poultry for use in your chicken breast recipes, don't leave it sitting in the car or on a kitchen counter when you get home. Make sure to refrigerate or freeze the poultry immediately. When it comes to cleaning the poultry for use in chicken breast recipes you want to be sure and never rinse the chicken breast before using as the bacteria can spread everywhere that the water splashes, which creates more of a safety hazard. Be sure to wash your hands with warm water and soap for at least 20 seconds. An alcohol-based hand rub can also be used if soap and water are not available. You should make sure to wash your hands before and after you touch raw chicken after using the washroom, or after handling pets. If you've used a plate or utensils to handle raw poultry, don't use them again until you've washed the plate or utensils thoroughly in the dishwasher or in warm, soapy water. Or use clean plates and clean utensils. Use one cutting board for cutting produce, and a separate cutting board for raw poultry. Use paper towels to help wipe down kitchen surfaces to prepare your chicken breast recipes, or change dishcloths on a daily basis to avoid the risk of any cross-contamination and the spread of bacteria. Avoid using kitchen sponges, as they are more difficult to keep bacteria-free. By practicing proper kitchen safety you can ensure that your food is safe to eat.
