Just wanted to throw out another option for you. When I vended chicken I did chicken quarters(leg thigh) and sold them whole, not pulled. My local Walmart had bags of them for $4.89 and had 10 quarters in each bag. Works out to $.50 a quarter and I sold them for $6each or $8 with a side and drink. They took about an hour and a half to cook and with the skin still on they retained all the good juices so didn't have to worry about them drying out. Some people don't like the "rubbery" skin, but I never had one complaint about it.

When I had my resturant I used the same leg thigh quarters and pulled them to make sandwiches. Only reason I did this was because I had so many requests for chicken sandwiches instead of whole quarters.
