Incognito mode does not save the browsing history on your computer. It deletes the temporary data and hides it from the person who may use the device later on. There's no direct method to see the content you viewed privately earlier.
However, you can use third-party apps to see incognito browsing history. You can also use DNS cache to recover the incognito history in Chrome. If you wish to know more about how to view and delete Incognito history in Chrome, then read below.
