I need a kick-ass potluck dish

CarrieWas218 | Jun 17, 2011 09:04 PM

90% of our office is traveling to a conference next week and I wanted to prepare lunch for the five of us who have to remain behind. They suggested a potluck so while they will be covering the salads, sides, and dessert, I want to offer up a really nice "thank-you" entree.

Limitations are the usual ones for potlucks; microwave is available, but no oven or stove. I do, however, own a small hotplate and for past potlucks, I've brought pots of soup which were well-received, but it is now summer and that isn't substantial enough.

I'm pondering Coq au Vin because that is stew-like, but it still seems too heavy for summer. Everyone seems to like chicken, but I am open.

Suggestions for a hearty main-course?
