When roasting chicken, we make sure the thermometer reads 180°F before we take it out of the oven, but this leaves our chicken dry.  That’s because the chicken continues to cook after it has been removed from the oven.  If you want a juicy chicken, take it out when the thermometer reads 170°F and let it sit for 10 minutes.  It will still reach 180°F and the juices will redistribute.  Happy cooking!  🙂
