When are poached chicken breasts/cutlets completely cooked?

efdee | Jul 18, 2010 08:00 AM

I've had enough experience with undercooked whole chickens to be very careful with the juices and internal temperature, but what about poaching chicken cutlets? I usually bring them to a full boil, and simmer, covered, for about 1/2 hour. They look ok, but is there a way to know for sure when they're thoroughly cooked? TIA
