Chicken breasts vary greatly in size. How much does the chicken weigh, for example, in the recipe "Baked Garlic Parmesan Chicken"?

the average chicken breast is 6 ounces- so 5-7 oz:-)

Chicken breasts are also irregularly shaped. The tips of the breast are much thinner and require less cooking time than the fleshy tops. Try pounding them to a uniform thickness or alternately, turn the breast ove to the back sode and slice the breast horizontally to even thickness reserving the trimmings for another use.

The boneless/skinless kind called for in that recipe tend to be basiclly the same size. You could always trim them to get uniform size pieces. I would use a meat thermometer to tell when done to the correct temp if that is your concern with this recipe.
