Sure sure sure. But here's the thing - I don't wash chicken (any meat actually) because I'm trying to wash off bacteria. I wash it to remove debris!!! Cooking will not kill a piece of plastic that was left on, or remove stray feathers, or remove any little bone fragments stuck to the flesh. Therefore it must be washed.Welcome to ChefTalk......
If you had done some research online you might have come across this:
Cooking will kill any bacteria present, including campylobacter, while washing chicken can spread germs by splashing. Thoroughly wash and clean all utensils, chopping boards and surfaces used to prepare raw chicken. Wash hands thoroughly with soap and warm water after handling raw chicken
The same thing could be said for any vegetable that you cook. And yet we wash them. Because debris.
