Should I use a thermometer to check 'done-ness' of boiled chicken pieces?

The answer I got about 1" beef cubes was to go by time, NOT temperature.

Does that still hold for chicken pieces? (whole bird, cut up)?

The last time I boiled the cut-up bird in my pressure cooker for 6 minutes per pound (21 minutes total), and checked the temp after, it was 205 degrees.

Should I cook it a bit less next time?

Thanks,
Mike
