Awhile back someone posted a recipe from Cook's Illustrated for roasted chicken. The recipe sates to cook the chicken until the meat thermometer registers 160 degrees. I always thought chicken was done at 175 degrees? HELP!!!
Here's the recipe for whoever might be interested.
ROAST CHICKEN BREASTS
2 large whole bone-in, skin-on chicken breasts
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
other spices, such as paprika, if desired
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Set breasts on foil-lined baking pan. Brush with oil and sprinkle generously with salt (and other spices, if desired). Roast until meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the breast registers 160 degrees, 40 to 45 minutes.
I look forward to hearing from you.
