Generally I bake chicken at 350 degrees F. for 30 to 40 minutes. Please check out my very large Internal Temperature Chart for Cooking Meats and Baked Goods. To be sure that the chicken breasts are cooked thoroughly, use a instant digital Cooking or Meat Thermometer for the proper temperature of 165 degrees F.
Similarly, it is asked, is chicken done at 165?
A meat or instant-read thermometer is your best bet for determining the temperature of your chicken, and if you're cooking a whole bird, it should be inserted into the thickest part of the thigh but not touching bone. 165 degrees Fahrenheit is the safe internal temperature for both the white meat and dark meat.
What temperature can you eat chicken?
To safely destroy dangerous bacteria the internal temperature of cooked chicken should reach no less than 165 degrees Fahrenheit. This is the minimum temperature for safe cooking, however, for maximum safety a higher chicken cooking temperature may be preferable, particularly for breast meat and whole chickens.
What temperature to pull chicken?
Pull the chicken halves from the smoker and allow them to rest for 10-15 minutes. During the rest, the carryover cooking will increase the chicken's temperature 5-10°F (3-6°C) for a final cooked temperature of 160-165°F (71-74°C).
