    • Hi Beth, I checked with Leah and she hasn’t tested this recipe with breasts.In general, though, we agree that you may lower the oven temp to about 350 and cook for a shorter time than the recipe dictates. Safest way to check for doneness is with an instant-read thermometer. Internal temperature for chicken breasts should read 145-150 F. Because the internal temperature will continue to rise after you remove the chicken from the oven, it’s likely safe if you pull it out at 145F and allow parts to rest for at least 10 minutes. Also, juices should run clear if you test with a knife. Happy holiday!
