"I baked this in an 8inch pan as someone suggested and had a major fail. I reduced the temp to 160 but I don't think it was reduced enough, rose so much in the middle and not at all on the outside. I'm going to give it a another go tonight as the flavour was pretty good!" - kjs0785

"Good but I think these buffalo chicken breasts are better grilled - slightly brown on each side and then baste generously with sauce turning once or twice until cooked through. But, this is a good substitute for nights when firing up the grill would not be optimal. Made several tweaks. Also recommend keeping some sauce on the side for dipping." - mrsoul51
