Pleeease help choosing a Julia Child chicken recipe to cook en masse

ceekskat | Sep 21, 2009 11:05 AM

I am going to be leading a group of 5 parents or so from my daughter's school in cooking a Julia Child chicken recipe during a party prep get together for our parent social. The dinner, with a Julia Child theme of course, will be the following evening. I need something relatively easy in order to delegate, sit overnight in fridge/reheat (no time to cook next day), & of course tasty.

When asked to do this, I said yes as I do enjoy cooking; however, I'm not even half as experienced as many of my fellow hounds :) Therefore, I seek your advice.

Coq Au Vin is out since cooking style is too similar to the beef bourguignon which is also on the menu. Other items at dinner will be cheese/charcuterie apps, salad, green beans, ratatouille & dessert. I understand that many of the recipes are available online. One recipe that was suggested is the "fondue de poulet a la creme". We are expecting approximately 75 people, so cook for 45?

I really appreciate your help! Thanks.

p.s. my expertise lies in Indian cuisine; however, whenever I reheat dark meat that I've cooked or sometimes bought, it always tastes gamey...
