How would you store the leftover chicken from this oven baked chicken recipe?
Great question. If you happen to have any leftovers, I would put them in a sealable bag or container and place them in the fridge.
I always like to have my leftovers eaten up with 48 hours of when I cooked them to ensure the best taste and flavor.
What could you make with the leftover baked chicken?
Combining recipes or creating new ones are so much fun! If you don’t want to eat just plain “oven baked chicken breast”, then you can use it another way instead!
Tear off the chicken from the bone (if not using boneless) and add it into a salad. Or even create a chicken salad recipe yourself using boiled eggs and dill pickles!
The options are truly endless on how you can reuse the chicken leftovers!
What is the best way to make certain that the chicken is cooked all the way through?
This is so so important. You don’t ever want to make the mistake of not cooking your chicken thoroughly.
I highly recommend investing in a meat thermometer for all your meat cooking needs. Why take the risk when your meat thermometer will be able to tell you exactly when it’s done and if it’s at the right temp?
At what temperature is chicken considered fully cooked?
When your meat thermometer reads 165 degrees Fahrenheit, you know that your chicken is done and safe for consumption.
However, it’s important that you insert it into the thickest part of the meat and also make certain that it’s not touching the bone (if not using boneless chicken).
You don’t want to get a false reading because it’s touching the hot inner bone of the chicken.
Can you use another cheese besides provolone for this cheesy chicken recipe?
Of course. You can switch it up and use whatever cheese you would like. Or, if you want to, you can eliminate it altogether! When you’re cooking, you ultimately get to decide what you want to put into the recipe or not.
What would be a good side dish to serve with this meal?
Side dishes are just the best! And when it comes to finding a good one, it can seriously be hard to narrow it down. Here are a few of my favorites that I know are good!
And those are just a few! A nice salad is always a great choice as well!
