The recipe calls for 2 organic chicken breasts, split (not a whole chicken) so you have four nice-sized pieces. Others used breasts and thighs with success. I would use what you want to but make sure you have enough marinade.

The whole chickens that most consumers buy range in weight from 3 - 3 1/2 pounds for a fryer to 5 pounds for a roaster. Bear in mind the whole chicken has bones when you select your parts. You will need about 1/3 less for boneless pieces.

as someone who spent summers on Seneca Lake and undergrad years at Cornell, I found this recipe a nice surprise. Knew about Cornell triple rich flour but not Cornell chicken. For buying by weight, start with 4 oz boneless chicken breast, or 6 to 8 oz bone-in per person. Use more if you want leftovers.
