Id eat both and say to hell with the judges. let them eat KFC.


hard to say becase of the brightness of the pictures but i think i would turn in A.. B looks a little pale in texture, like the skins not quite done.

I would say A, looks like a little more of the fat may have been rendered and skin might be a little more tender.

I'd say A has a little more pleasing color to it than B. That being said I'm not a big fan of those grill indentations, for me that screams grilled, high heat almost reverse sear chicken pressed in a grate.
I'm guessing one is 2nd place invitational chicken and the other is 66th place open chicken???
All said and done it would really matter on the flavor to me. Can't taste the flavor here.

I'd say B. The sauce on A looks a little gloppy to me.

The texture looks like a panini grilled sammie! Not really desirable to me.
I'd say A. The second one doesn't look as good to me.

Srsly. The eye is just riveted by the indentations.

Oh, okay, A, because I'd want the top left piece.

A as they look more uniform in size and color with a good glaze.

B has one or two pieces that do not appear to be fully glazed, the lower left one in particular has a large bare spot on the hinge side according to the lighting.

I don't see a big difference between them other than as already stated A looks like it has a bit more browning of the skin. I'd go with A because for some reason the bottom right piece on B looks like an empanada (but only looks that way in the pic I'm sure).

Look about the same but can't taste it or check the tenderness here.

I would go A the color looks a little better to me and it looks like the pieces a slightly more uniform. Both are pretty close to each other though and look good.

First reaction - B. They look like they belong together. However, the angle of the pic may have something to do with that. The color also looks more consistent - but that may be the pic as well. Both look really good. The only "problem" with B is that the thigh in the lower right looks like a calzone. Hey - while you're at it post all your other GAB turn-in boxes. Just so we can judge 'em, of course ;)

Wow...tough choice. They both make me want to reach my hand in and grab a piece. Since I can only go with appearence, I'm going to say A, looks(ever so) slightly more appealing.... but still a very close call.
