  • a whole chicken, sometimes an hour or more, pieces are usually 30-45 min

  • The rule is 20 minutes per pound of chicken. So a 3 lb chicken is a hour. Make sure to take the temp, it should read 180 degrees in the meaty part of the thigh. If you don't have a meat therm, make sure the juices run clear.
