How long to bake chicken cutlets at 375?
Most recipes for boneless, skinless chicken breasts will bake in the oven for 20 to 30 minutes; especially these stuffed chicken breasts. The best way to tell if your recipe is done is to use a digital meat thermometer.
When the internal temperature of chicken reaches 165° F, the chicken is done. How long it takes for chicken to reach this temperature depends on the weight, size and thickness of the chicken breast.
You'll want to remove the chicken from the oven and let it rest before slicing into it and serving. I usually like to cover the baking dish or baking tray with aluminum foil for about five to ten minutes.
Helpful Kitchen Tools
- Digital Meat Thermometer - use this to make sure the chicken is fully cooked.
- Meat mallet - before I broke down and purchased one I used the back of a heavy measuring cup. A meat mallet works so much better.
- Parchment Baking Sheets - I love using these sheets for not only baking but to help me prep chicken. Keeps my cutting boards clean from germs.
