Whenever you are preparing chicken breast recipes, poultry, raw meat or seafood, you want to be sure and handle it properly. So when using ground chicken, or any ground meat you want to be sure and properly wash your hands before you handle. Make sure and wash your hands for at least 20 seconds. You also want to be sure and separate any poultry, raw meat or seafood properly to avoid any cross-contamination which could cause bacteria to spread from food to food or onto other surfaces in the kitchen. Make sure to seal any chicken, seafood or raw meat 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 throw away marinades and liquids that are used to marinade any chicken, seafood or raw meat. You should never reuse marinades on cooked foods, this also goes for basting any poultry, raw meat and seafood, you should reserve some of the marinades before any of the raw meats are put in, that way you can use the marinade to baste while the poultry is cooking. Make sure to always properly chill raw food; that also goes for thawing poultry, raw meat, and seafood. Don't wait too long to get chicken, raw meat or seafood into the freezer or fridge as this can result in the growth of bacteria. And always make sure to freeze or refrigerate poultry, raw meat, and seafood within two hours after purchasing. You can do this by making your grocery shop the last stop on your list of errands to do, this way the meat can go right into the freezer or refrigerator. Try and always purchase your chicken or meat last. This is important especially on hot days where the food might be spending time in a hot car.
