I have spent the last 2 hours reading your newsletter and wonderful recipes. I have already printed a whole bunch I want to try. I love them because they are using ingredients one has on hand. I love that and just wanted you to know how much we appreciate all your hard work in putting together this newsletter. Thank you very much.

Safe Chicken Temperature

How long does raw chicken have to be cooked after coming out of the freezer?



Raw chicken needs to be cooked until the internal temperature reaches 180F.; a chicken breast is considered done at when its internal temperature reaches 165F.

As cooking methods (baking, stewing, braising, slow-cooking, grilling, roasting, etc.) vary, no definite time can be given. The best thing is to check doneness with a meat or cooking thermometer.

With no thermometer, you'd look for clear juices running from the flesh (not pink or red), when the chicken is poked. This method isn't necessarily recommended as it causes a loss of moistening juices.

Happy Cook'n,
