I usually bake low and slow, allowing time for the marinade to caramelize. 60-80 minutes @ 250F.

No they should have a bit of skin, about al dente maybe a bit chewier, and soft in the middle. Just looking to give it some texture.

No, not crispy. Cook it too long and it will get tough. Maybe cook it to the point of light browning, although that may be difficult to determine due to the dark marinade. I think you could cut off a bite while it's in the oven, let it cool and taste it, then decide. I think a little bit chewy or somewhat chewy might be an indication. Maybe a bit softer than chicken. I suspect it's not really that critical as long as it isn't an extreme.

Might be good to experiment, take a piece out somewhat early, then later take out all but one last piece, let the last piece cook a bit longer. Then decide when it's served which is best.

One of my favorite tofu dishes, is an eggplant & tofu (stir-fry?) from an Asian restaurant "Panda Express." The flavors are wonderful. There are some copycat recipes on the web. I'll bet a spicy peanut sauce would be great too.

Great pics, Savannah. Thanks for sharing.
