Who the heck actually washes pre-processed packaged chicken

anyway, and for what?

We've been eating chicken all our lives and never rinsed it just to rinse it unless it fell on a dirty surface or something. Maybe a freshly slaughtered one that had a mishap during dressing, or a whole bird that happened to be extra bloody, but that's rare if you let them drain a while.

You washed off half the flavor. Lol

Out of the pack, and into whatever it's being cooked in.

That's what cooking is for. And it works too. Lol, In fact, I generally never cook chicken to 180 either. It dries it out. 160 - 165, maybe 170, is plenty good, even without washing. Never made us sick.
