Balance this special-occasion entrée with smart side dishes. For example, choose a mixed green salad and a hot cooked vegetable.
Keeping it Safe
Never allow cooked chicken to set at room temperature for more than 2 hours. If it is not eaten immediately, cooked chicken should be kept either hot or refrigerated.
How to Check Chicken For Doneness
Always use a thermometer to see if chicken is cooked through. The internal temperature should register at least 165ºF. When the chicken is completely cooked, the juices should run clear.
