Washing chicken

sylvan | Jan 19, 2012 08:19 PM

I pat dry chicken before I brown or roast it but I know some people who wash chicken before cooking.
When I ask them why they say it's to get them clean. The chicken is not brined. It's right from the grocery store package. What would be the purpose? Seems to me that one would just have a sink to disinfect.
