I'm cooking chicken breasts and making extra for my boyfriend tomorrow. There are three chicken breasts, large and pretty thick. I was planning on basting them with olive oil and spices and broiling them in the oven until they browned, then wrapping them in foil and baking them until they're done.

Normally I'm good at just baking chicken, but since I'm broiling, I'm not sure how much shorter the cooking time will be. So, I'm wondering how long should I broil them to brown them and then how long should I bake them to ensure all 3 are fully cooked? Would 5 or 6 minutes broiling actually brown them enough and then another 45 to 50 minutes at 375 degrees finish them? Or is that too short a cooking time?

(Please don't say "they're done when the juices run clear" because that answer has never helped me)
