Entress that keep well in chafing dish

michaeljc70 | Mar 2, 201307:13 AM     13

I am having a birthday party for 50 people and looking for ideas of foods that can be prepped in advance (but not necessarily cooked in advance) and keep in a chafing dish around an hour or be served at room temperature. It doesn't have to fancy, but I am trying to avoid things like Italian beef and pasta with red sauce.

My ideas so far:

-Braised beef
-Stuffed peppers
-Italian sausage with red wine/grapes
-Braised/brined chicken (though white meat still might not do well)
-Braised/pulled pork (though was hoping to avoid sandwiches)
-Pork/chicken scallopini marsala (though these are lean meats, I think with the liquid and not overcooking to start with,, it might work).

I make a really good lemon shrimp pasta, but I think the shrimp would maybe get too dry.
