How Do You Bake Chicken That’s Not Dry?
One of the keys to juicy chicken is not over cooking it, drizzling it with olive oil or some other liquid (i.e. marinate) and not cooking it too hight too fast. Pay close attention to your cooking time and use a meat thermometer to ensure it is fully cooked.

How Long Does it Take to Bake Chicken at 350?
You always want to get the internal temperature of the meat before you decide that it’s done cooking, but generally speaking it takes about 25-30 minutes to bake chicken at 350 degrees. Thick chicken breasts are going to take the longest to cook where chicken thighs will cook quicker.
How Long Does it Take to Roast a Whole Chicken at 325?
It all depends on the size of your whole chicken. Typically speaking you want to cook your chicken in the oven for 15-20 minutes per pound.
Is it Better to Cook Chicken on Low Heat or High Heat?
The slower and lower you cook your chicken the less likely it is to dry out and be overcooked. Also, the higher the heat the more likely it will make a splattered mess inside your oven.
Personally, I try to avoid cooking chicken in the oven over 350 degrees.
