What's the appropriate temperature for chicken?
Chicken should be cooked to an internal temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit, or 74 degrees Celsius. Outdoors, chickens prefer a temperature between 65 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit, or 18 to 24 degrees Celsius.
The recommended internal temperature for safely cooked chicken is about 75°C (165°F). Use meat (or instant read) thermometer to determine the temperature of cooked meat. If you're cooking a whole chicken, assure that thermometer is inserted into the thickest part of the thigh and not touching bone.
Cook chicken at 375 degrees Fahrenheit, about 20 to 30 minutes per pound, until it reaches internal temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
