Chicken temp?

I am wanting to do some chicken breasts as an easy first cook but what temp do you all cook at? I am thinking around 350.

    That sounds about right for if i was doing them at regular grid height. I usually go raised direct 425 or so.

    A nice & relatively easy way: Indirect (platesetter legs up, then grid) at 350 dome temp until internal temp of chicken hits 165.

    If you go indirect, treat the egg like an oven. Chicken breasts often done at 400-425, nice crispy skin, boneless/skinless, maybe 400 or so. 
    Indirect like Quinn says.

    I do thick glazed breasts and chicken cordon bleu raised direct at 350 so it doesn't burn the glaze.
