    Need to impress in-law

    I need to impress my in-laws with a nice meat meal. I want something that is fancy but not too difficult to make. They like sauces and unusual food. Nothing too spicy. I was thinking of Chicken Oscar, or a Beef rolled and stuffed with dressing. Does anyone have a good recipe they can suggest? Thanks so much! Peggy Jane icon_wink.gif

    This will knock their socks off, you too icon_wink.gif.

    Mediterranean Chicken With Dried Apricots & Prunes is made the night before or with as much lead time as you can get. You won't be fussing with dinner prep & such and will have time to enjoy your company. It doesn't get easier than this. Super delish and very pretty presentation!

    Now if you want to be busy and hide int he kitchen (I do some times, icon_lol.gif) then pick another recipe! rotfl.gif

    If they like seafood, this is one dish I absolutely love
    I didn't go through every chicken oscar dish. But I flatten the chicken then stuff with the crab stuffing.

    Bake in a pan with butter and white wine.
    Serve with a blender hollandiase which can be MADE ahead and kept warm in a thermos.
    Also, asparagus, or if you want beans or mushrooms can be served too. A baked potato is easy to serve this with. Try rubbing the potato with olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic powder. It is delicious and easy.

    And again, you can prepare so much in advance.

    Whatever recipe you choose, I recommend trying it out yourself once before you serve it to them. You don't want any recipe disasters on the actual day!

    My favorite company dish is Monterey Chicken Rolls; in fact, I just served it yesterday with Crock Pot Scalloped Potatoes (omitted the ham), Balsamic and Brown Sugar Roasted Carrots, and Buttery Soft Crescent Rolls (it was an all Food.com meal!). Usually I serve it with broccoli and augratin potatoes but wanted to change things up a bit.

    That is something that I would serve. A couple of upscale sides; appetizer, salad etc, and it is a nice dish.

    It is something that they may not have every day.
