National Chicken Month
Up until I was 15, I was a vegetarian. I’m 21 now, and even though it’s only been 6 years of eating meat, I don’t feel the slightest bit guilty about turning over to the dark side. Since September is National Chicken Month, I wanted to share some tips and recipes that I think all cooks (beginners and experts) will find helpful about delicious chicken.

Tips for Thawing Chicken
- Always freeze uncooked chicken if it is not to be used within 2 days.
- Chicken should not be thawed on the countertop.
- It takes about 24 hours to thaw a 4-pound chicken in the refrigerator. Cut-up parts, 3 to 9 hours.
- For quick thawing of raw or cooked chicken use the microwave. Thawing time will vary according to your microwave.
- Chicken may also be safely thawed in cold water. Place chicken in its original wrap or watertight plastic bag in cold water. Change water often. It takes about 2 hours to thaw a whole chicken.
Cubing Chicken – For cubing chicken: Refrigerate after cooking. Wait until and gets cold and then it will be so much easier to cut!
