Q: What temperature should grilled chicken be cooked to?

A: Grilled chicken should be cooked to 165⁰F and pulled and then allowed to rest for at least 10 minutes to allow carry-over cooking to get it the rest of the way done. One thing about grilled chicken is if it is bone-in, skin-on, the chicken will cook better than boneless skinless chicken breast, and the bone and skin also impart more flavor to the chicken. It is something to consider the next time you are going to grill chicken; the skin and bone also help to protect the meat against drying out as well.
