There's a current trend for short chapters to be recommended as a tool for writers to discipline themselves, but that's not a view I subscribe to myself.
The 'trend' isn't simply to write small bits, it's more an admonition to edit. You see this a lot in poetry, where authors are required to fit all an entire line into so many syllables. It gets authors to pay more attention to their word usage, tweaking and perfecting their work to get the most bang for the buck. It's a lesson all authors should focus on, but which few novelists ever pick up.
However, in regard to preferring larger chapters, it's a personal choice. I found, after revising my writing to focus on shorter chapters, that my scores, in general, fell even as the reviews of my stories (on Amazon and goodreads) went up. In short, SOL readers seem to prefer longer chapters. And while my 'more compact' writing has helped me as a writer, I feel I've lost something by contracting too much. Now that I'm writing longer chapters, I feel the writing is stronger, as I spend more time being reflective, rather than just dealing with the details in the story.
As far as your own writing style, while 700 to 1000 words might be idea on a time management basis, that doesn't mean each chapter should be limited to that size. There's nothing that suggests you can't add a few 1,000 word segments into a single chapter.
