Hurry Up I’m Hungry Chicken Breasts

When Is It Done? The USDA recommends cooking chicken and turkey until the internal temperature of the breast meat is 170°F and the thigh meat has reached 180°F for optimal safety. But most chefs today cook the breast meat to 160°F and the thigh meat to 170°F for juicier results. Keep in mind that the internal temperature will rise 5 to 10 degrees during resting. Whatever temperature you choose is entirely up to you. Check the thigh meat by inserting the probe of a thermometer in the thickest part [but not touching the bone]. The juices should run clear and the meat should no longer be pink at the bone.
