An amateur "chef" has horrified the internet after showing how to "cook" chicken by using a kitchen sink.
The TikToker, who thankfully appears to be joking in the clip, filmed himself washing a raw chicken to leave it “medium-rare” under some hot water in his now-viral video.
The heat of the water appears to turn the pink meat white on the outside to give the impression that it was cooking.
He then pats down the “cooked” chicken with a paper towel before serving it with some broccoli and potatoes.
But when he goes to slice the chicken it’s clear it is not cooked at all and is completely pink inside.
The uploader, @succhefful, shared the video with the caption: “If you haven’t tried a sink chicken you haven’t lived.
“Pretty much guaranteed perfect medium rare every time.”
In the hashtags, he added “salmonella” which further suggests that the whole “hack” was a joke.
And plenty of other videos on the user’s page indicate that he may not be being too serious.
One of his most recent clips, for example, showed him slicing a pineapple in half before lathering on a dollop of ketchup.
But after his video was seen more than 1 million times, some viewers were still concerned that he was being serious.
“I’m calling the food police right now,” one wrote.
Another commented: “That’s it, I’m filing for a lawsuit.”
And a third added: “This is just asking for salmonella.”
According to the NHS, washing raw chicken before cooking it can increase your risk of food poisoning from campylobacter bacteria.

This is because splashing water onto the meat can spread the bacteria onto hands, work surfaces, clothing and cooking equipment.
“Water droplets can travel more than 50cm in every direction,” a section on their website says.
“Only a few campylobacter cells are needed to cause food poisoning.”
When cooking the chicken, it is important to make sure it is steaming hot all the way through with no pink meat.
