Nevermind that cooking raw chicken, as opposed to cooking cooked chicken, and adding sauces afterward are how hot wings are made in every restaurant and home in America (except Hooters.)

Skeptical about this woman's ability to assess what she was seeing.

The seasoning is the least objectionable thing about this story.  The fact that the guy handled raw chicken with his bare hands and evidently didn't wash before touching other things is far more dangerous.

But yeah, there's a lot of fluttering and pearl-clutching in this story.  She should have mentioned it to a manager instead of breathlessly live-Tweeting like a safari-goer seeing a lion getting lunch.

Well, what CAN you do? Cooking the chicken at home and reheating it at work is beyond our technology.
Also, salmonella is one of my favorite food additives. I do enjoy it.

I brought wontons to a work pot-luck once, and everyone loved them. Had the hand-made wontons and dipping sauces in a cooler and brought Crisco and a Fry-Baby and set up a wonton-frying station at the table and had a line the entire party until I ran out. It's not necessarily bad to cook at a work function, but handling raw chicken and then touching everything in sight is beyond the pale.

I was in a grocery store several years ago and the fish monger was adjustng the fresh fish with gloved hands.  Between fish he ran his gloved hands through his hair.  Fish, hair, fish, hair.

Yes I mentioned it to th manager.

And yes, yes he is.

truly horrifying story of raw unseasoned chicken being cooked

Yes, you only cook cooked things.

I used to work for a company that wouldn't allow a toaster in the office because it was a fire hazard. They would have called Homeland Security if someone brought in a fryer.

That said, someone did bring in a toaster, burned some toast and set off the fire alarm, evacuating several floors. And because it shut down the building elevators, I got to take the stairs to the 13th floor co ing back from lunch. I was never so happy that I didn't work on the 45th floor.  Still better than someone bringing in fish, though.
 
2019-03-13 03:12:55 AM  
I'm going to guess that the guy brought in those big arse wings that take a long time and look raw even when done.

That was quite literally the dumbest story ever written about chicken, offices, or people.

'He keeps offering me the salmonella and I'm downing pizza slices just to say I'm full. I don't even eat pizza anymore. I've had three slices in 20 minutes.

Good lord, just say no thanks and move on with your sorry-ass soft life. This sounds like the most difficult situation she's ever managed to get herself in throughout her entire life...what an existence.
 
2019-03-13 06:52:16 AM  
Something I've noticed in the past couple of years is people who think raw chicken is like kryptonite. I understand normal kitchen hygiene, but  touching raw chicken isn't going to make your hand fall off from salmonella.

We had a hibachi grill we kept in the welding shop in the hospital I used to work at.
When we broke it out we would get calls about the smell "Smells like somebody is grilling something in the basement" Ok we will check it out
The welding shop shared duct work with the bio med department
Sad where I work now doesnt even have a welding shop

I can see calling him out for not using Franks Hot Sauce and Margarine.

And if he serves them with ranch dressing? Citizens arrest.
 
2019-03-13 08:23:07 AM  
One of their co-workers complained of having a stomach ache after eating one of the wings. She wasn't sure why she was getting stomach pains but it seems pretty likely it was salmonella.

1.  Listeria is the primary concern with raw chicken.
2.  You did not have salmonella.  Salmonella is quite a bit more than "a stomach ache".

The "licking his fingers, to check the sauce, before reaching again for the uncooked chicken" bit was a particularly... interesting... touch.

1)KFC isn't breaded
2)Buffalo wings are not fried chicken, well I mean they are chicken that is fried but they aren't fried chicken.

You can, but you're going to use a lot of seasoning, since most will fall off (if it's not batterd). Most good fried chicken places will season their dry flour mix.

Unless they use breadcrumbs which i do not think they do I would not personally call it 'breaded' but I can concede that perhaps the term is used more broadly than I use it.

I think that they dip it in egg and then roll it in flour/spices.   So it's breaded, but not heavily.

I use corn starch on my Buffalo wings before frying them. It keeps a nice slight crunch and tends to hold the sauce well.

I once watched a coworker come out of a bathroom stall, run his fingers under water for a second and leave.

A few moments later I went into the break room and he was making coffee, which he promptly evened out in the basket with this fingers...

I'm not sure which is worse, poopfingers or the blight spreader in this story.

Not sure about KFC but usually you do spiced flour, liquid, then spiced flour again. Also, buttermilk is roughly a million times better than egg for fried chicken.

I've done that before too and I like it but I usually only bother with it if the wings are tiny and I know they'll be destroyed if they are in long enough for the skin to get crispy on its own.  Decent sized wings get crispy easily enough.  If your sauce isn't sticking melt some margarine (or butter) with it in a saucepan.  The classic Buffalo wing sauce is Franks RedHot and margarine.

No one likes a snitch, she should have just been like, "hey, you've gotta be careful when you're handling raw chicken, now go get a spray bottle of bleach and wipe down everything you just touched... or I'll tell the manager so he can have the janitors do it".

I get that people are nervous when they're new at a job, but still, you don't go to the boss until after you've brought your objections to their attention first.  The guy probably didn't even think about it like that.

In my entire career, I brought a lunch that required microwaving once, just once.   I bravely ventured into the lunch room, and learned that people have horrifying microwave habits.  There was a line.  Several people just re-heated sandwiches or soups, some them massively overcooked, as in plastic-ware bubbling and melting overcooked.  One woman microwaved some sort of large fish casserole, for some 20 minutes.  Sure, the rice probably took that long, but the fish was was just rubber bits.  I never did get to use the microwave and went hungry that day.

Damn, that was a boring story, I was bored just writing it.

I'm pretty sure hogging a microwave for 20 minutes to cook fish, in a crowded break room, during lunch, is the original definition of a sociopath.
