Should you soak chicken to remove blood?


Wiki User

Chicken does not have to be soaked first, but if you want to prevent the appearance of blood oozing from the extremities, it is recommended. According to the article at the related link below, simply cover the chicken with water for about thirty minutes prior to frying. Other cooks have even suggested adding salt as this helps to kill the bacteria.
