A question about a recipe: Nigella Lawson’s Chicken and Pea Traybake

I have a question about the recipe "Nigella Lawson’s Chicken and Pea Traybake" from Genius Recipes. I made this recipe once to rave reviews. I am planning to make again for a family birthday dinner next weekend for folks who hate dark meat. If I make this recipe with bone-in chicken breasts (split) instead of thighs how much extra time should I add? Any other adjustments to make?

I would use the same # (8) or estimated raw weight (3 lb) of bone-in split chicken breasts to replace bone-in chicken thighs in one full version of this recipe.
On time in the oven:
* I would not give them extra time (as they are same weight)
* might even check sooner than the recommended total 1 1/2 hours (as white meat tends to cook faster than dark),
* Use the signs you normally look for in chicken breasts to know they are done
* and/or remove from oven when their internal temp reaches 165F.
