Every chicken lover’s nightmare and every cook’s dilemma are to understand how to get rid of the poultry smell from that glorious chicken cut. It’s a common trouble faced by many. First things first, once you have figured out what type of cut you need for that favourite chicken recipe and purchase meat online, there are a few important things you must keep in mind:
You must check the package for the U.S.D.A Grade ‘A’ rating, all online meat ordering facilities must have their chicken inspected by government certified officials. When you use a meat home delivery service make sure to check for unbroken packaging as well as a sell-by date stamp.
You must also make sure that the colour of the chicken skin is creamy white or deep yellow and never grey or pasty. Check for bad odour, which signals spoilage.
Now with the primary checks done, you can use your purchased chicken for that favourite dish without any worries. When you order halal meat online, one thing you can be sure of is that the meat home delivery services assure clean cut chicken. So whenever you’re ready to use the chicken you don’t have to worry about unclean or spoilt chicken. However, it’s always good to wash the meat before you use it, both for your safety and self-satisfaction. Generally, chicken has a slight poultry smell, but that is fine, with a few tips you can get rid of it and you can enjoy only the desired smells and flavours. Here are some quick and easy tips to say bye to that unwanted poultry smell from your raw chicken:
To remove the strong poultry smell from the chicken, all you need to do is put the chicken in a large non-metallic bowl, pour in about ½ cup of white vinegar over the chicken and mix well so that every piece is coated with vinegar. Leave it aside for about 4-5 minutes, then thoroughly wash the chicken under running water and you will no longer have chicken meat smelling of poultry.
You can also rub the chicken with turmeric powder and leave aside for about 5 minutes, then wash thoroughly under running water.
Another way to remove the poultry odour from the chicken is by rubbing it with salt and keeping it aside for about 5 min, followed by washing it under running water.
