Chicken / How long to cook chicken breast and other tasty chicken cuts

Chicken breast, and other cuts, depending on how big they are and how they are cut and prepared will require different cooking times. If you grill, fry or bake the chicken breast also will effect how long you need to cook them. The best way to determine how long to cook a chicken breast is to follow the recipe you have and use a meat thermometer. A boneless chicken breast will have an internal temperature of 170 degrees F. when fully cooked.

Below is a chart for approximate times for how long to cook chicken breast and other chicken cuts and temperature.
