I am preparing a dinner at a friend's house- but would like to do as much prep as possible beforehand. It will be a dinner for 14 people- with appetizers beforehand at 5:30pm with dinner to be served at 7pm. Dinner is salad and the choice of either rack of lamb or stuffed chicken followed by dessert. So far I have 4 chicken to make and 10 lamb. My question is this: In terms of cooking the chicken and lamb should I do this before hand and then simply reheat? Or perhaps brown the chicken and lamb beforehand and then bake at my friend's home? I would like to come up with a solution that causes the least amount of mess, noise etc. as possible but that will still maintain the quality of the chicken and lamb.
