One can chose to either bake the chicken or even cook it on a skillet. Cooking them at high heat in the Oven ensures it’s crispy edges, while keeping it super juicy on the inside. Once the chicken is golden and changes color, it’s cooked! You can even check it with a cooking thermometer. Let it rest for about 5 minutes to recirculate all of those natural juices through the meat.
