How to tell when Baked chicken is cooked all the way
The most important thing to remember when cooking chicken breasts in the oven is that you do not want to over cook them. If you over cook chicken breasts then you end up with dry chicken. No one wants that!
The easiest way to make sure you have juicy baked chicken is to check it with a meat thermometer. You want to cook the chicken breasts until they reach 165 degrees in the thickest part of the chicken breast.
