How do you make Easy Baked Cheesy Mushroom Chicken?

How Long Does Baked Chicken bake for at 375 Degrees F?

  • Thaw frozen chicken slowly in your refrigerator, or thaw it faster by putting it in a leak-proof package or plastic bag and submerging in cold tap water.
  • Bake chicken breast in an oven proof dish at 375 degrees F for 15 to 20 minutes or until the chicken is no longer pink inside..
  • Use a meat thermometer to check that the internal temperature is 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Do you cover baked chicken with foil?

You don’t have to cover this dish with foil.  But I do cover most baked chicken with foil.  Because the chicken is thinly sliced and you brown it on each side before, it takes a shorter amount of time to cook.  If the chicken is thicker and takes longer to cook, the aluminum foil helps seal in the moisture and cook the chicken evenly.

What is the internal temperature of a chicken breast?

Generally I bake chicken at 350 degrees F. for 30 to 40 minutes. Please check out my very large Internal Temperature Chart for Cooking Meats and Baked Goods. To be sure that the chicken breasts are cooked thoroughly, use a instant digital Cooking or Meat Thermometer for the proper temperature of 165 degrees F.
