Whenever you are buying chicken for use in food ideas and chicken breast recipes, you want to remember a few simple guidelines. When you are purchasing fresh chicken for your recipes, you want to make sure there is no unpleasant smell coming from the chicken. That is a pretty good rule of thumb for most foods; if it doesn't smell right, it's better not to use. This is especially true for fresh poultry, which should have very little to no smell. If you are buying a whole chicken for use in food ideas and recipes, you want to make sure that the skin, the flesh and the bones are undamaged. Chicken breasts for use in chicken breast recipes should be plump with a very light pink flesh with very little to no fat. Chicken thighs are a chicken product that has a darker meat and should also have a dark pink flesh with a little white fat.
When it comes time to store chicken, make sure to keep it in its original package container or you can also alternatively place the chicken in a shallow container that is loosely but completely covered. Store in the coldest part of your refrigerator for up to two days. If freezing the fresh chicken that you have purchased in portions, make sure to freeze the chicken immediately after purchasing in its original packaging for up to two months. Alternatively, you can separate purchased chicken into serving portions and thoroughly wrap the portions in plastic wrap twice, and freeze for up to two months. It is also very important to thaw out the chicken completely before using in your chicken food ideas and chicken breast recipes. To defrost the chicken, place the frozen chicken on a large plate in its original packaging, then place in the refrigerator to defrost, this method will take approximately ten to twelve hours. Do not refreeze any chicken products once the chicken has been thawed. To tell if a chicken is completely thawed, you need to check the cavity of the chicken to make sure that there are no ice crystals, and the legs and thighs are flexible. A chicken that has been completely defrosted should be cooked as soon as possible.
