Nope! You can cook the chicken stovetop in a skillet or bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes. Time may vary depending on the chicken size. Chicken is cooked when thermometer it reads 165 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer. If you don’t have a thermometer look for clear juices when chicken is pricked with a fork or knife.
