Choice of chicken pieces and amount really dependent on what you like and and what your guests like. Same of amount and choice of vegetables. Dish can also be made without the vegetables, but one-dish meals are so easy, and the vegetables are flavored by the chicken and the chicken flavored by the steaming vegetables. Whatever you do, make the recipe and the dish yours!
