- Chef’s tip: The core temperature of the chicken should be 170° F (77° C) in the breast meat, 185° F (85° C) in the thigh meat if you are using a meat thermometer. A stuffed chicken may take longer to cook. If you do not have a thermometer, the chicken is cooked when the juices from the chicken run clear without any traces of pink.
