Chicken cooking tip: Trim off all visible fat and remove excess skin, and choose cooking methods to ensure the meat remains lean, such as barbecuing, grilling and roasting. Poultry must always be cooked all the way through to prevent the possibility of food poisoning. Any leftovers should be covered loosely and cooled quickly in the fridge. Use within two days.
