Nervous About Cooking Chicken? Here Are Some Tips to Make Sure You’re Not Serving Undercooked Chicken
“You can only kill salmonella if it reaches 165 degrees. There is no medium-rare for chicken,” head chef at Hello Fresh, Michelle Doll-Olsen, tells Inside Edition.
“I would rather just about burn it to make sure it’s cooked,” one person said in a TikTok video.
The hashtag 'Chicken Anxiety' has 23 million views on TikTok.
Head chef at Hello Fresh, Michelle Doll-Olsen, spoke with Inside Edition to help calm some nerves.
“Of all the proteins, chicken is the one you have to take the most seriously,” Doll-Olsen says. “You can only kill salmonella if it reaches 165 degrees. There is no medium rare for chicken.”
Doll-Olsen showed Inside Edition two ways to make sure your chicken turns out perfect this holiday weekend.
“A thermometer is really the only fool-proof way to make sure you hit 165. Otherwise I would recommend slicing into the thickest part of one of the chicken breasts to see that it’s cooked through,” the chef says.
When it comes to grilling chicken, Doll-Olsen recommends preheating for 10 to 15 minutes and cooking both sides of the chicken breast for five to seven minutes each.
A survey found that chicken is the third most-popular food to grill on Labor Day, behind the traditional staples, hot dogs and hamburgers.
