    I’m not a big cook personally but why does it say don’t wash raw chicken? I think I may have rinsed chicken myself but I’m sure I’ve seen it done multiple times and maybe on TVs or YouTube! Is it a big no no? Thanks in advance.

    It’s so water doesn’t splash everywhere spreading any bacteria on the chicken

    Not great reviews, unfortunately

    These reviews are people reviewing their own inability to cook. These chickens are just plain old chickens, nothing special - but if cooked well they are perfectly OK.
