Throughout the world we eat lot of chicken, as fried chicken or chicken curry or chicken salad (cold) and this is also one of the foods with many important nutrients. Even persons with heart problems could eat this, but with out skin and fat which could be seen by the eyes.
At the same time we should not forget that these hens are kept in small and narrow cages (cruelty to animals). They get power feed to grow quicker. Antibiotics are used which we may eat with our chicken specialities.

In the kitchen the hygienic conditions must be good and fresh or frozen chicken must be washed in flowing water. The waste must be removed properly and all the places in the kitchen where the chicken came in contact must be cleaned properly with lot of water disinfection fluids. Otherwise, salmonella, the rod-shaped gram negative bacteria will make you sick and it is very dangerous to your life.
