Whenever you are using chicken in easy dinner ideas, whether for a salad recipe or a stir-fry, you want to be sure to handle the chicken properly so you don't spread any harmful bacteria. Some of the things you want to make sure to do when handling chicken is to properly wash your hands before first whenever handling chicken, meat or seafood. Be sure and wash your hands for at least 20 seconds. You also want to be sure and separate chicken, raw meat and seafood correctly to avoid cross-contamination which could cause 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, 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. It's always a good idea to bring along an insulated bag with a freezer pack inside, so the meat is chilled right away. Do not defrost poultry, raw meat or seafood at room temperature; you always want to defrost in the refrigerator, in cold water or in the microwave to help prevent bacteria from growing.
