I have a quote to do for an 80 person catering. They want chicken but told me they want a variety. I was hoping to do just hindquarters. What would be the ratio of white/dark meat to serve?

If they want a variety then I'd do whole chickens. I would half them and cook them just like that, then cut them apart when they are finished.

GFS has cases of fresh (not frozen) chicken quarters . 32 breast/wing and 32 leg/thigh quarters. I did a couple cases for a party last year and they were good, and it only takes them a couple days to get them in once you order them.

I did a church picnic a couple weeks ago and did 40 half chickens. Cut those in half for serving. The people ate about a equal number of each. Liked the idea of only turning and moving 40 pieces instead of 80. They were cooking a little fast so I stacked them on top of each other and I think that helped them stay moist with juice falling from one to the other.

Super Walmart usually has chickens for $0.89/lb. Depending on how many I have to cook, I'll buy those and quarter them myself.
