Buying Guide (serving sizes):

As a guide to buying amounts of chicken, the Delmarva Poultry
Association suggests that an average "serving" of chicken for people is:

: 1/2 to 3/4 of a pound of whole chicken
: 1 chicken breast half, with or without bone
: 1 chicken leg (thigh and drumstick attached)
: 2 chicken thighs or drumsticks
: 3 chicken wings Handling and Storing Chicken at Home:

The United States enjoys the safest, most wholesome supply of fresh
chicken available worldwide. But keep in mind that chicken is an animal
agricultural product and, like all such products, it can carry certain
microorganisms, most of which are harmless. Even if harmful bacteria are
present, the numbers are usually far below levels that would cause human
illness if the product is handled safely and cooked at normal temperatures
until done. Safe handling of chicken, or any perishable product, isn't
difficult. These procedures included:

Don't wait, refrigerate.

Take purchased poultry home as soon as possible and
refrigerate for use within one to two days. Freeze for longer

Thaw in refrigerator or microwave - not at room temperature.

Don't leave cooked poultry at room temperature more than 2

Place leftovers in shallow containers and refrigerate

Keep it clean:

Wash your hands, work surfaces, and utensils in hot soapy
water before and after contact with raw meat and poultry.

Cook thoroughly:

Cook poultry until a meat thermometer registers 160 degrees
Fahrenheit for boneless product, 170 degrees for bone-in parts, and
180 degrees for bone-in whole chickens product, OR until juices run
