RE: How to Bake Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast
Yes, searing them on the stove-top and then finishing in the oven will work. As far as how long they will take to finish, it depends on your oven temperature, how big or small the breast are, how long they were seared and how far along they got before they were placed into the oven. Therefore, I would have to say "they are done when they are done" (sorry, that's what the chefs at culinary school always say, but that's just how it goes as there are so many variables). Best to check early and often. As soon as they are no longer pink in the middle they are done. This may only take 5 minutes but it maybe take 10 minutes or more...just depends. Hope that helps. Cheers!
