Where do you put a thermometer in a chicken thigh?
Correspondingly, where do you put the thermometer in a chicken?
The proper place to put the thermometer is into the thickest, densest part of the chicken. We place it just between the breast, the leg, and the thigh, and press it right inside - and this thermometer should rise up to 165. At 165 degrees, your chicken is properly roasted.
Secondly, where do I put the thermometer in my turkey thigh? Slip your meat thermometer into the thickest part of the turkey thigh, pricking the bird just above the crease between the thigh and the place where the turkey breast begins, and driving it into the thigh meat. When the counter reads 165 degrees, your turkey is ready.
Thereof, at what temperature is chicken thighs done?
Can Chicken Thighs be a little pink?
Internal Temps. All poultry, from breasts to thighs, has a recommended internal cooking temperature that should be heeded in order to avoid foodborne illness. According to the USDA, the internal temperature of a thoroughly cooked chicken thigh is 165 degrees Fahrenheit -- pink or not.
