I need to cook a work-related dinner for about 25 people I've never met before. Most of them are women. I'd like to make everything ahead of time so that all I need to do on the night is to set out salads and heat the main dish in the oven. (I do have a smallish dual oven). I also have a crock pot and a rice cooker.
I'm thinking of chicken as the main protein since few people object to that. I have no idea if anyone is vegan/vegetarian/gluten intolerant.
Help me, Food52 geniuses!
