Chicken is a versatile meat that can be roasted, grilled, baked, slow cooked and sautéed. It's used in many cuisines around the world, and because it isn't too expensive, it's a great staple to have on hand in the kitchen. 

However, while it's a popular meat with home cooks, it's one that many don't actually cook correctly. There are a number of common mistakes people make when it comes to chicken that make it turn out bland, dry or just plain dangerous to eat.

If you can't figure out why your chicken isn't coming out the way you'd hoped, it could be because you aren't seasoning it properly. Or maybe you aren't entirely sure when it's done cooking. The problem might even start before your chicken is done thawing from the freezer. Have no fear, these errors can be fixed—you just have to know what you're doing wrong first.

Check out the slideshow above to see if you're cooking chicken all wrong.
