And I love that the cook time is hands off 😉

Is it Better to Cook Chicken Slow or Fast?

When baking chicken, it’s best to go with a higher temperature for a shorter amount of time. Cooking chicken quickly means that the juices stay inside the meat and the outside gets perfectly browned.

Should You Bake Chicken Covered or Uncovered?

For best results, you’re going to want to bake your chicken uncovered. This allows the outside to really caramelize and brown, which also helps to lock in the flavors.

What Temperature is Chicken Done At?

Here’s a helpful guide to knowing when your different chicken cuts are done cooking:

  • Skinless, boneless chicken breasts are done at 165°F, whereas bone-in chicken breasts are done at 170°F
  • Skinless, boneless chicken thighs should also be cooked to 170°F
  • Lastly, bone-in chicken drumsticks and thighs are done at 175°F
