Purchasing, Handling and Cooking Chicken
When you're buying chicken, look for skin that is deep white to yellow in color and meat that is firm when pressed gently. Remember to practice safe handling techniques when preparing and cooking chicken. Always wash hands or any surfaces that come in contact with the raw meat immediately with soap and warm water. Chicken should be cooked to a minimum internal temperature of 165°F on an instant-read thermometer in the thickest part of the meat, avoiding bones.
