Just be glad we don't have wings. We'd never survive the Chicken Super Bowl.

To tell the truth if I saw a 10 foot tall chicken I'd head in the opposite direction as fast as my drumsticks would carry me. I'd at least check the type of mushrooms I used in that last recipe.



I think slime has been misinterpreted. I haven't gotten slimy chicken but a high viscosity fluid is in the package and I'd like to get that off the bird before it goes in the pot or on the heat.

Rinsing is not to rid the poultry of bacteria. It's to get rid of the ookies. (Thanks Dawgluver. I love that term)

Common sense say's not to splash liquid all over the place while rinsing off the ookies but perhaps the article is needed because we all know where common sense is these days.

Thanks Chief! We are small voices crying in the wilderness. Ookies are the only reason I rinse my chicken. Bacteria, who cares, the heat will get 'em. I prefer not to eat cooked ookies.

When I am preparing a packaged chicken parts for the freezer, I have a bowl of cold water on the counter. All the parts go into that and then I take them out one at a time and dry them well with paper towels. Then wrap for the freezer. It keeps my work area dry. And I am working right next to the sink.

Perhaps if there were bald chickens we wouldn't have to rinse the feather ookies off.

Not to mention it would be easier for CWS to give them a bath and Myrtle wouldn't get her feathers ruffled by the blow dryer.

I guess I could limit baths to when the girls are molting...

I've heard that and it makes sense. We all need to think about this. Unless we're washing our chicken with hot soap and water (I know... ridiculous example), we're not cleaning off/getting rid of any bacteria. I'm sure most (if not all) of us have always rinsed with cold water, and of course no soap. That does nothing to get rid or or kill any bacteria. But it does, no matter how careful we are, spread that bacteria. But cooking does kill that bacteria. This is a tough one. No matter how ineffective it is, it's kind of a reflex to just rinse.

I'm pretty sure I've responded to this before... but an interesting topic nonetheless.

I find it keeps a day or so longer in the fridge if I wash and rewrap it. I even do it right before cooking, although I didn't realize that about the skin. The wisdom of grannies...
