    Don't go over 165 in the breast, for the legs and thighs, the hotter the better. -RP

  • BlueRidge,
    Thanks both of you.
    I was a bit too late asking the question though! Breast was 175 plus when I checked! Whoops. Still darn good. I have to put the polder in at the start because I obviously have NO CLUE!

  • BlueRidge,
    I think the "recommended" temps are
    160 in breast and 180 in thigh.
    I can tell you that I"ve been cooking my chicken way past that... partially because I like it really falling off the bone and partially as an experiment. So far, no matter how high / far I push it, the chicken is still killer moist.
