How to Handle Raw Chicken

  • Leave the chicken in the fridge until ready to use.
  • Be careful of dripping juices. Clean up immediately.
  • Do not wash raw chicken (prevents cross-contamination).
  • Wash all utensils and cutting boards.
  • Wash your hands after handling raw chicken.

If you prefer to use something other than the Gouda Cheese, you can substitute it for any other type of cheese that melts well. Just keep in mind that the type of cheese you select will alter the flavor of these quesadillas. Mozzarella Cheese would be an easy choice.
