How do you know when the chicken is cooked?
The butter baked chicken will take about 30 to 40 minutes to cook. When it is ready the top will have turned golden brown. If you have a food thermometer it should read 165F in the largest part of the chicken breast. You can also pierce the chicken with a fork, if the juices run clear it is ready.
