The best oven temperature for chicken breast is at 177 degrees Celsius or at 350 degrees Fahrenheit if a recipe is not being followed. The chicken breasts being cooked should ideally take up to 15 minutes to bake.

When baking chicken breast, it is best to follow the information specified in the recipe being used for the right temperature and proper cooking time. Chicken is baked gradually from inside and out. Cooking the chicken at a higher temperature than needed can often result in either uncooked or a bloody inner portion of the chicken breast while being burned on the outside.
