Full Answer

A whole chicken weighing up to 5 pounds should roast for up to 1 1/2 hours at 350 degrees Fahrenheit to reach an internal temperature of 180 degrees Fahrenheit. Bone-in pieces take longer to cook, even when they are roasting at the same temperature. A bone-in chicken breast cooks for 30 to 40 minutes, and a boneless breast cooks for 20 to 30 minutes. A 6-ounce ground chicken patty cooks for 20 to 30 minutes.
