Gourmet Potluck Dish?
- soypower Apr 18, 2008 11:09 AM
I'm going to a potluck in a couple weeks and I'm looking for something unique and ridiculously delicious...I lean towards asian flavors, but am open to any ideas...
Also, I have a potluck nemesis who seems to always bring the same dish I do...Last time we both brought asian style chicken wings and I have to admit, hers were much better than mine...
So please, help me find a unique, delicious potluck dish that will appease the masses and leave my nemesis begging for the recipe...
I'm thinking something w/ chicken thighs or skirt steak.
Thanks in advance for all your help! ~
How about a chicken satay? It's not the MOST exciting thing, but it would be great with the thighs, and if you do it well, it'll be very popular. Maybe add a pineapple cube to grill at the end of each skewer?
This Idea is not asian but I have taken my recipe for bbq country style pork ribs.
boiled in pineapple juice and broiled with bullseye bbq sauce, cut into 2" cubes
and I have seen 5 secratary`s come from they full plate and used there hands
to grab one of those ribs before I started cutting them up in cubes. the people
in line would get so mad because the ribs would`nt last until they got there. It
is a very easy recipe and the ribs are so tender you have to use a spatula to
pick them up. there won`t be any to take home. trust me!!!
Does coconut curry sauce appeal to the masses? This is a good recipe for basil chicken and coconut curry sauce. You can play around w/ all the spices if you think it might be too much for everyone. I like to leave some seeds in the jalapenos for spiciness but you can wash it out if you want.
Chicken Marbella - Silver Palate (I make this dish with thighs)
Ina Garten's Roasted Vegetables and Orzo salad
Rachel Ray's Steak & Bloody Mary Bites, can be made with skirt steak.
Nigella's Feta, Watermelon Salad.
Ina's Chinese Chicken (I make it with rotissarie from Costco).
Or Giada's Chicken Tetrazini - can be made with thighs.
I have made all of the above, and they are all outstanding.
Got rave reviews!
