How long to cook Internal Temperature

What's the Internal Temp of a Cooked Chicken Breast When Done?

According to the USDA, the internal temp of cooked chicken breast when done should be at least 165 degrees. For the best results, pull your chicken breast off the heat once it reaches an internal temperature of 162 degrees Fahrenheit and let it rest for several minutes: The carryover heat will cook it the rest of the way, so you can avoid potentially overcooking and drying out the meat. This method works for any chicken breast recipe, whether you're using boneless or bone-in chicken.
