There’s nothing that says “backyard cookout” like grilled chicken. Knowing the right grill temperature for chicken can make the difference between a juicy, flavorful meal and an overcooked, dry mess. Chicken needs to cook slowly over indirect heat and reach an internal temperature of 165 F before serving.
SIMPLE STEPS TO GRILLED CHICKEN
KEEP YOUR TEMPERATURE IN CHECK WITH A THERMOMETER
A good grilling thermometer, such as the Char-Broil® Instant Read Digital Thermometer, is your first line of defense for a perfectly grilled chicken. Insert the thermometer into the chicken breast (not touching the bone). When the indicator reaches 165 F, the chicken is ready to be enjoyed.
