hey mista, how many thighs you trying to get in that box anyway. i would look at the shape of the box and try to divide it up evenly, fitting one piece of chicken into each portion of the box, for example two rows of three for a total six. also i would watch the char around the edges, and perhaps a slightly thicker coat of sauce or glaze to make them a bit glossier. then i would pleat the lettuce to make it perfectly semetrical all the way around with only curly parts and no flat spots showing. thats about it but take my suggestions for what they are worth. i have never been in a competition before.
