Zuni Roast Chicken - Only Chicken Parts... HELP!!!

Thought I'd get this buried out from below for better chance of response.

Carb Lover, with the pic and post, totally inspired me to do this recipe even though I had the cookbook for a while now.
Only problem is that I did not get out of work in time to go to a local butcher, so I went to Whole Foods as I thought the chicken there would be better than a Foster Farm or some such mass produced thing. Turns out, Whole Foods did not have a whole chicken in the size dictated by the recipe (2.75 to 3.75lbs). The smallest ont they had was nearly 6 lbs! So I got 3 smallish breast pieces (skin on, bone-in, kinda like chicken halves) that together totalled 3 lbs. I did do the salting last night ,but am now afraid of what the cooking will be. Should I change the cooking time? Temp? Is my quest for making a Zuni chicken totally ruined?
I'm so sad as have been boasting to BF how great this chicken will be.
