Food safety tips
- always wash your hands, work surfaces, utensils and chopping boards before you start preparing food and after handling raw meat, including poultry
- keep raw poultry away from ready-to-eat foods such as salad, fruit and bread
- make sure that the chicken is cooked until steaming hot all the way through, no pink meat is left and any juices run clear
- wash or peel raw vegetables before use – this will help clean them and remove any harmful bacteria that might be on the outside
- any leftovers should be cooled within 1 to 2 hours and placed in the fridge (for up to 2 days) or frozen
- when reheating, always make sure that the dish is steaming hot all the way through before serving
- never reheat food more than once
- cook the rice as required and use immediately, or cool within 1 hour, refrigerate and use within 24 hours. When you reheat any rice, always check the dish is steaming hot all the way through. Do not reheat rice more than once
