$minutes = 780;

$some_time = date("g:i a",mktime(0,$minutes,0,01,01,2000));    
echo $some_time;

The combination of date() and mktime() can do just about anything with 
dates and times that you could ever possibly dream of doing (it can 
even do some nifty stuff with english ordinal suffixes that have nothing to 
do with dates or time).
