To keep things simple 165 in the breast but cook your birds hot! My chicken is always falling apart and juicy and the reason is high temps. If i cook a bird to 165 in the breast it's way hotter in the thigh.

Chix and turkey are the only things I temp, except maybe tri-tip 'cause I don't cook those often enough to go by feel on 'em. I go for 165 in the thigh and the breast falls in place.

Temp for my poultry, always. 165 and they come off, except for big turkeys. Those come off right as it goes past 160.

I'm with Jeff on pulling the breasts early. They will keep cooking and dry out. If you are cooking a bunch of them, pull them at 155-160 and put them in a small (6 pack) ice chest and they will stay warm, moist and cook a little bit more. They come out great that way.

I always check the internal temp: 160F. I want my chicken as juicy as possible and checking it helps me quite a bit.

Never...only when I'm catering.
I use the Thermapen mostly for leaner cuts of meat that I don't want to overshoot in temp.

Before I got my thermapen, I never temped a breast when I grilled it, just cut into it. Now I do every time. Makes for a much juicier chicken.
