4. Chicken Breast Core Temperature
Gourmets like to serve the breast glazed and juicy. This type of preparation is recommended only for high-quality premium poultry meat.
Very great is a Bresse chicken, also Bresse-Gauloise, it is a special breed of chicken that comes from the Bresse region northeast of Lyon, between Jura and Saône.
Likewise, a corn chicken or the corn chicken breast is very suitable for this form of preparation.
Poussins are the last recommendation at this point. The very young chickens are particularly tasty.
For well-done poultry meat, you need a core temperature of 72°C for at least 10 minutes.Cooking Tip from Thomas Sixt
