But if you’re cooking skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cook them on medium for a charcoal grill and medium high for a gas grill. It’s the most precise way of telling if the chicken is done. The perfect internal temperature is 165 degrees for dark meat, 160 degrees for white.
What temperature do you take chicken out of the oven?
Now the USDA is recommending that, because of bird flu fears, chicken should be cooked to a temperature of 165 degrees F. Remember that the meat will continue to cook after it’s removed from the heat; the internal temperature will rise about 5-10 degrees in the first few minutes it’s off the heat.
