Welcome to ChefTalk......Hi everyone,
I am new to cooking and I do need your help regarding food safety for raw chicken as I don't know how to judge this.
I wanted to marinate my chicken overnight and cook tomorrow. Therefore I washed it by soaking it with cold tape water for a while (less than 15 mins) which I know is not a good way to wash the meat after doing some research online. Next I rinsed it with cold water. I also accidentally rinsed it with warm water for a few seconds. I marinated it and now it's in my fridge.
Question: Is it still safe to cook and eat this chicken? Thanks so much!!
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
