Description:Taken in a home kitchen setting, in its background, this photograph depicts a skinned and boneless piece of chicken breast meat set atop a clean, white ceramic platter. In the foreground, you’ll note a cooking meat thermometer, which can be used in order to determine the interior cooking temperature of foods such as this chicken breast. The cooking temperature reached inside the meat needs to be sufficient enough to kill any pathogenic organisms including Salmonella spp.

Thermometers Aren't Just for Turkey Anymore

These days, food thermometers aren't just for your holiday roasts—they're for all cuts and sizes of meat and poultry, including hamburgers, chicken breasts, and pork chops. Using a food thermometer when cooking meat, poultry, and even egg dishes is the only reliable way to make sure you are preparing a safe and delicious meal for your family. The USDA recommends that all poultry be cooked to a safe minimum internal temperature of 165 °F, as measured with a food thermometer.
