Diva Researching: Cook Times for Chicken…

Grilling Times for Chicken and Turkey

I found This handy chart that shows you how long to grill different cuts of chicken, including grilled whole chickens, grilled chicken breasts, grilled chicken kabobs, grilled chicken thighs, and grilled chicken wings and drumsticks.

Grilling Time and Temperature for Chicken and Poultry

Chicken and other poultry should be cooked to an internal temperature of 165 degrees F (75 degrees C). Keep in mind, clear juices are not always a good indicator of doneness. Depending on the age of the bird, juices might not run clear until it’s overcooked. Also, as you see from the chart, boneless cuts of chicken cook faster than bone-in pieces of chicken.
