It is easier to cook other types of meat than chicken. Chicken has white meat and dark meat. Chicken breast is white meat, and it cooks quickly. Thighs are dark meat, and they need more heat to cook well. When cooking any part of a chicken body, you need an instant read thermometer to read temperatures correctly. There are different temperatures to consider. First, you must set the oven temperature correctly.
As the chicken cooks, assess it to know its internal cooking temperature. Additionally, consider the safe internal temperature by the USDA’s food safety chart. This is the temperature level that can remove harmful bacteria from the chicken. Lastly, you have to reach the perfect temperature for the level of doneness you are targeting.
