    Supposedly the 165º to 170º range, but my wife wants her's DONE. So I have to go more towards 180º.

    165 is plenty, but then foil and rest them for at least 15 min.

    Chicken is the one thing I always cut to check.  There are so many folds, creases and different thicknesses on a chicken that it is hard to get to temp on the entire bird.  Use the recommended temps on the breast but always poke or cut where the thigh meets the breast and make sure you do not have and red, cloudy liquids or blood ooze out.  Chicken can never be served undercooked.
