Very good. Make sure to season the breasts with salt and pepper before assembling. It would be a good idea to season the cracker crumbs as well. I found the cooking time was a bit over cooked. Try 10 minutes at 350F and then 10 minutes to finish. Even better cook using a thermometer to ensure the chicken doesn't get over cooked. The red pepper sauce really worked well with the flavors.
