Tips and Tricks:
1. Chicken is cooked when it reaches an internal temperature reaches 160F/70. I always recommend using a meat thermometer (a worthy investment). 
2. If you don’t have a meat thermometer, you can cut open on the the pieces in a fatter part and check that it is cooked (no more pink).
