Can I eat this? (I'm going to anyway.)

I marinated four chicken breasts late yesterday, the recipe says to marinate for at least half an hour, but no longer than two hours. I accidentally left two breasts in the marinade overnight in the fridge. I will be cooking them for dinner tonight regardless, but should I expect a drastically different result because of the extra 12 hours in the marinade?

The marinade is half a cup of soy sauce, two tablespoons of honey, two shakes of Chinese Five Spice seasoning, a splash of sesame oil, and the juice of a lime.
I panfried the breasts last night and they were delicious - so delicious that I had seconds, and then was too full to be bothered cooking the second batch which was my initial plan. I vaguely thought I might trying baking the remaining two tonight but now I'm wondering if they'll be too dry or will fall apart or will explode causing death and destruction for miles around or something?
I've just removed them from the marinade and put them back in the fridge, covered, on a clean plate, but as I stabbed one of them with a fork to transfer it to the plate, it was ridiculously tender for a raw chunk of chook.
PS: I've seen this question
but it was for a whole chicken with skin on, so I don't know if it applies to my skinless chicken breasts.
