Food Safety Question

I just breaded raw chicken pieces by turning them in a pan filled with a mix of bread crumbs and parmigiano.... have a lot of breadcrumbs left over and I am wondering if I have to throw them away. Can I use it in something else if it is cooked?

  1. If you are going to bread something right away(today), I would use them. But I wouldn't store them and use them again, that raw chicken has contaminated them.

      I agree,

      They can be used today to coat foods that are cooked to 160°F, but they must be discarded at the end of your current meal.

    2. Toss them, they are toxic. this is a no-brainer.
