It’s Sunday, the clock shows noon. A smell of chicken invades the kitchen and tickles the nostrils of the most gourmands. A few potatoes to accompany the poultry. A good juice to wash it down. We’re salivating in advance. The stomach is already gurgling. There is no doubt, chicken is the ultimate family Sunday dish.

But so that the meal does not end with meat that is too pink or too dry, there are still a few tips to know in order to make it perfect. We went to meet Victor and Elena, both at the head of the Segar rotisserie in the 5th arrondissement in Paris. They revealed to us all the secrets of this much-loved poultry.

Today, a little focus on cooking. We answer the following question: how do I know when my chicken is cooked?

“It is the most eaten meat in the world, whether you are 3 years old or 90 years old” Victor tells us. Indeed, chicken is generally unanimous, there is no doubt: “It’s very family-friendly. It remains a unifying element. In general, when we eat a roast chicken, whether with friends or family, we are often gathered around a good table”.

And for the magic to work, cooking is a key element. In fact, the worst mistake when cooking it is to overcook it according to the two rotisserie specialists. To avoid overcooking, it is therefore imperative to monitor the cooking carefully.

To check that your chicken is cooked, the first option is to use a probe thermometer. For that it is necessary “Prick it on the inside of the thigh and it must be at least 80 degrees”. And be careful, it is imperative to prick it precisely when cooking, because it is “from the pinkest part. The white will always be more cooked. This is truly the indicator of properly cooked chicken”.

Other signs may indicate that your chicken is cooked. In fact, the managers of the Segar rotisserie explain to us that “Visually, the thigh will detach a little bit and from the moment it detaches, then the chicken is perfectly cooked.”

Specialists remind us that the thigh does not represent a single piece of chicken, but several small pieces together which form a thigh. However, when this piece begins to detach from each other and the thigh separates from the chest, then the cooking is finished. For Victor, this tip is really effective: “there are no mistakes. You can be sure your chicken is cooked. It’s a bit like grandmothers’ technique.”

Keep your eyes peeled next time and observe the state of your chicken to learn more about its cooking!
