Like many of you, I rinse my store-bought chicken to remove the "whatever" is on it. I probably break 5000 rules when fixin' chicken. I also scrub the daylights out of the sink et al both before and after working with the chicken. I'll buy the boneless breasts when they're on sale, rinse and blot dry each one, and place them individually in zip sandwich bags. Then I put those bags into freezer bags, stick a note in with them with the date they were packed, and file away in the freezer for a quick supper later. I see no reason to pay premium price for what amounts to Perdue "Perfect Portions". Besides, in our house chicken breasts are the new "365 Ways to Fix Hamburger" meat! Knock on wood, we've never had issues with anything.
CWS, LOVE your "chicken joke".
