I am having my neighbors over for a casual dinner tomorrow night. I am a decent cook, but hosting really stresses me out. I wanted to invite them because they had us over for dinner a while ago and I'd like to reciprocate. There will be a lot of kids, so for appetizers I plan on putting fruit and cheese and nuts, nothing fancy. I am definitely going to make a stovetop mac & cheese.
I'm just wondering if any of you have suggestions for a protein. I am leaning toward roasting chicken, but I don't really want to deal with carving the chicken when I am supposed to socialize. It takes two chickens to just feed my piggy family so that means three chickens!
I don't need any written-out recipes unless you particularly want to provide one, but if you could throw out an idea of something fairly kid-friendly that I could put together for four adults and five kids I'd love to hear.
Thanks and yes I will comb previous threads too!
