Can you wash chicken?

You should never wash chicken before cooking it because this can increase your risk of food poisoning.

According to the NHS website, splashing water from washing chicken under a tap can spread the bacteria onto your hands, work surfaces, clothing and cooking equipment.

Cleaning the area after washing the chicken won’t save you either – water droplets can travel more than 50cm in every direction, so you’re bound to miss a few spots.

Only a few campylobacter cells are needed to cause food poisoning.
