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 your chicken grilled, you can let the chicken breasts marinate in a zip loc freezer bag containing the lemonade marinade.

Tips

The chicken is ready when the internal temperature taken in the largest part of the breast hits 165°F.

Serve it up with a side of baked beans, herbed couscous or a nice green salad. If you decide to grill the chicken instead of baking it in the oven you can serve it with a side of potato salad or macaroni salad.

    This lemonade chicken is the best I have ever tasted. It is so moist and very flavourful.
