Need to wash off chicken pieces before cooking?

mike2401 | Mar 7, 2014 09:27 PM

I purchased boneless skinless organic chicken thighs. Do I need to wash each individually before tossing in the pan? (Years ago I used to do that just to clean them). Then I thought: these are raw dead chicken pieces: how clean can they be? That's why we cook them, to kill the germs. Now I just toss the package in the pan and cook. Is that ok?

Thanks,
Mike
