    You very well could use bone-in chicken but you need to make sure that you cook your chicken longer. Bone-in chicken will require a longer cook time. You just need to use a meat thermometer to check to ensure the meat reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit. 

    Just make sure to not stick the thermometer in where the bone is, or it can give you a false reading.
