Cooking Tips
Chicken Test for Doneness: No matter what method you use for cooking chicken, the most accurate test for doneness is a meat thermometer.

Since chicken is never ready to be served until it is done, always be sure it is completely cooked. Whole or bone-in chicken should reach an internal temperature of 180°F, and boneless chicken should be cooked to 165°F.

Other indicators for doneness include: A fork or toothpick can be inserted with ease; The juices should be clear, not pink; Bone joints move easily.
