Default Whole Chicken Advice Needed

I am cooking in a unsanctioned charity event in a few weeks. One of the categories is whole chicken. The box must contain a half chicken cut into four pieces. Leg and thigh are obvious, but should I debone the breast and cut it in half, or should I include wing? Is there some other configuration I should be thinking of?

Help, please....

Unsanctioned events are infamous for playing loosey-goosey with rules.

Unless it is expressly forbidden, I would put the entire chicken in the box with a nine piece cut: 2 wings, 2 drums, 2 thighs, 2 breasts + wishbone. Fill the box with meat and give the judges choices and you maximize your chances IMO.

You need to check with the organizer. My definition of a half chicken is wing, breast, thigh and drumstick.

I'd ask if it must be cooked whole or can it be pieced out and cooked. Is cooking half or quarters legal?

I would half the breast and leave the wing attached. You can see where I am going with that.

I might even consider thirds and leaving the leg quarter together.

Thanks all. The rules say that it must be cooked whole and the box must contain a half cut into at least four.
