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.

Instead of wasting time cooking chicken, use some chopped rotisserie chicken to make this salad recipe even easier!

You can easily tweak this salad recipe to your liking by changing up the vegetables I used.

I know many of you don’t like Blue Cheese so feel free to substitute for your favorite crumbly cheese like Cotija or Feta.
