The chicken is a domesticated fowl. Chicken is an extremely popular food and can be eaten alone or used as an ingredient in a wide variety of dishes.
How long is chicken good if kept frozen?
A whole chicken can keep up to a year in the freezer. Frozen chicken parts can last up to 9 months. But that will depend on how good the freezer is at maintaining temperature and how well the chicken is packaged for freezing. Make sure the chicken is packed securely and air-tight. Use packaging designed for freezing. Any air pockets or loose packaging will allow the food to dry out or become freezer-burned.
Freezing preserves food forever since it stops growth of bacteria. The problem is the quality of the taste diminishes with time. It should be good up to six months if it doesn't get freezer burnt by then.
Just so you know - once chicken has been frozen below 26°F, it can no longer be called 'fresh'.

People constantly ask for some type of verification that the food they eat will not make them ill. That is nearly impossible to do without bacteriological and chemical tests, so the best we can do is provide guidelines, like:
- Handle food in a sanitary manner (wash hands, clean & sanitize food-contact surfaces, protect from cross-contamination, package & store properly)
- Keep potentially hazardous food out of the temperature danger zone (140°F to 40°F). Keep hot foods hot and cold foods cold.
- Reheat leftover cooked foods thoroughly (to 165°F)
- Use food within a reasonable time
Research will give you different answers. Remember that they are only guidelines. In the end, you are responsible for what you feed yourself and your family. This adage is a good one to follow: When in doubt, throw it out.

Why are people freaking out over the Popeyes Chicken Sandwich?
Popeyes released their new chicken sandwich on August 12, 2019, and so many people bought it that the company actually sold out in two weeks. After a two-month hiatus, the sandwich returned to the menu on November 3, and customers are already reporting absurdly long drive-thru lines.
The initial launch of the sandwich began what was dubbed online as “The Chicken Sandwich Wars,” with Popeyes main competitor being Chick-fil-A. Customers took to social media to cast their vote on the superior chicken sandwich, and the chains themselves exchanged some light-hearted banter via Twitter.
The Popeyes sandwich sells for $3.99 and is made with fried chicken breast, two pickles, and a dollop of mayo on a brioche bun.
How long does chicken stay fresh in the refrigerator?
Cooked chicken could be good up to 4 days. Raw chicken is best used within 1 or 2 days. You should store the chicken in the coldest part of the refrigerator for best shelf life or put it in freezer if not used within that time frame.
Thawed chicken should be cooked as soon as possible. If not using the chicken immediately, store in the refrigerator and use within 24 hours of thawing. Thaw frozen chicken using one of three methods: in the refrigerator; in a cold water bath, changing the water every 30 minutes; or in the microwave. If using one of the last two quick-thaw methods, cook the chicken immediately. NEVER thaw chicken at room temperature. USDA recommends 1-2 days of refrigerated storage (40°F).
Depending upon the packaging of the chicken, how it was handled in-transit, and the temperature in the refrigerator, the chicken could last longer. For example, some refrigerators have a special meat storage drawer where the temperature is just under 32°F which will allow more shelf life.
Uncooked fresh chicken: less than 2-4 days in sealed package
Cooked chicken: less than 5 days in sealed bag or Tupperware
What is in artificial chicken flavor?
Most artificial flavorings are derived from petroleum. They may affect RNA, thyroid, and enzymes. Most have not been studied for safety or toxicity. They are all synthesized chemicals that don't even have common names. Most artificial flavors actually contain many chemical ingredients, not just one. Many of those chemicals are volatile. Natural flavors are chemicals, too, though.
The FDA doesn't require manufacturers to list color or flavor additives on ingredients left, as long as they are recognized as safe. Some of these can cause allergic reactions in intolerant people, and these folks can find it hard to avoid those substances. Many times the ingredients will simply say "artificial flavors" without mentioning which ones. Most of them don't have common names anyway.
Companies have been trying to use natural flavors in their products for the last 20 years. Many of the synthesized flavors can actually be found in nature. Processors have been trying to derive these flavors from nature rather than synthesize them. It is better to get these substances from nature than from petroleum, obviously, but synthesizing them can allow us to create purer versions that are less dangerous.
Some artificial flavors are safer than their natural counterparts. Benzaldehyde is almond flavor, and when derived from nature, traces of hydrogen cyanide--a deadly poison--can be found in it. When made by mixing oil of clove and amyl acetate, no cyanide is produced. Artificial flavors are actually better in many cases, because they don't contain contaminants or toxins. However, benzaldehyde made either way can cause central nervous system depression and convulsions.
How much protein is there in 1 whole chicken?
Because chickens come in different sizes, it is only possible to give a very rough approximation. Begin by assuming that even an average chicken could provide at least 4 servings, and a serving is about 1 cup of skinless, boneless meat. One serving provides about 40 to 45 grams of protein, and 4 servings - assumed to be one small chicken - would total 160 to 180 grams of protein.
What are The Market forms of Chicken?

How long do you cook an 8 pound whole chicken in crock pot?
Whole chickens rarely go above six pounds. For a six-pound chicken, cook it on high 6 to 6 1/2 hours or low 7 1/2 to 8 hours. If you are referring to a baby turkey or whole turkey breast, the cook time for an 8 pounder in a crock pot would be 8 to 9 hours on low or 6 1/2 to 7 1/2 hours on high. When a thermometer reads 165 degrees F and the juices run clear, the chicken/turkey is done. Keep a close eye near the end of the cook time, because all crock pots cook at different temperatures and times.

Is a chicken drummette white or dark meat?
The term, "drumette" can mean one of two things.
The first kind of drumette is a small piece of chicken containing a bone - this actually is the larger section of a chicken wing, with the outer tip section removed. This is considered to be white meat.
The second kind of drumette is a shaped piece of formed chicken meat that has been removed from the bone. A processor uses molds to shape the chicken pieces into a bite-sized morsel, after which they are usually breaded and fried (or prepared for frying) and packaged. This kind of drumette can contain either white or dark meat or a combination. It might tell you on the package.
So - to recap - if it has a bone in it, it is part of a chicken wing, and is white meat. If it is boneless, it can be white, dark, or a combination.

Are chicken wings considered dark meat?
Chicken wings, like the breast, are white meat. The difference between white meat and dark meat is attributed to the amount of myoglobin in the muscles. Myoglobin is stored in muscles that get exercise, because they need more oxygen. The more exercise a muscle gets, the higher the concentration of myoglobin. Since a modern domesticated chicken is basically flightless, the breast and wings get very little if any activity, so the muscles develop very little myoglobin. Where this really becomes evident is in flying fowl like ducks; the meat is more of a reddish color all over, which is why ducks are basically all dark meat.
Nevertheless, when cooking, wings should be treated like dark meat, not white meat, which can get dry if cooked too long. Wings take well to long cooking times and high heat, just like thighs. Just be careful when grilling or barbecuing, since wings are also one of the fattiest parts of the chicken and tend to create flare-ups on the grill.
- In fast food restaurants, it is not unusual to order dark meat and get wings. In much of food service, wings are considered dark meat.
- Actually wings should not be treated as dark meat but as white meat they can dry out very easily. The reason they may take longer are the multiple bones in their structure. They should be cooked for a long time at a very low temperature such as 225-250F like your proper smoking temperature, or baked or deep fried at high heat very quickly to seal the outside thus preserving the juices on the inside. This method creates an extremely crisp crust where the slow smoked method creates a wing that is quite a bit more succulent. In addition the white meat of a chicken contains alot less natural internal fat compared to the thigh meat. The myoglobin is responsible for the color difference but it is the fat content that makes the thigh and leg meat retain its moisture for a longer period of time before drying out.
Can soy flour be used to fry chicken?
Soy flour could be used as breading when frying chicken, but the results would not be the same as when using ordinary wheat or self-rising wheat flour. Soy flour has different proportions of starch, protein and fat than wheat flour, so will not produce identical results in cooking.
