The first thing to note about this recipe is your cooking time may vary ever so slightly. In the picture above you can see I am using medium-sized chicken breasts. Smaller chicken breasts might cook up closer to 20 minutes, while larger might require 25 minutes or more. Always use a kitchen safe thermometer and your common sense when cooking meat!

Secondly, a note about the temperature. I think 360F works great on chicken. You could probably cook faster at a higher heat but you’d run the risk of drying out the lean meat. 360F yields a nicely juicy piece of chicken, without too much exterior toughening.
