Wedding Recipe Ideas

Our daughter's getting married on 7/7/07, with an outdoor reception. She wants an elegant (yet simple) dinner, possibly buffet style, and I need to find recipes that will work for entrees, preferably chicken or pork. Any ideas? We're talking 250+, so needs to easily reproducible.

This might be good, hope you can use it.

Bacon Baked Chicken

4 slices bacon

4 chicken breast, de-boned

1 pint sour cream

2 10 3.4 oz. cans cream of mushroom soup, undiluted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Wrap uncooked bacon slices around chicken and place in a baking dish.

Mix sour cream and soup and spoon the mixture over the chicken. Cover dish with foil and bake for 1 hour.

You could use chicken theighs in place of the chicken breast, and cut them into smaller pieces before serving.

If you want your guest raving over your chicken casserole, fix the following elegant entre:

Dottie's Chicken Casserole

4 to 6 boneless chicken breasts, cooked

2 cans cream of chicken soup

1 8oz sour cream

2 stacks Townhouse crackers, crushed

2 sticks butter

Cut chicken into bite size pieces and place in buttered 9x13 baking dish. Mix cream of chicken soup with sour cream and pour over chicken, spreading evenly. Melt 2 sticks of butter and mix with crushed crackers. Sprinkle evenly over soup mixture. Bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees.

This is a scrumptous recipe that your guests will love and that looks beautiful with the golden brown cracker topping. I have used a whole chicken and not limited it to breasts without a change in taste. Can be made in commercial serving pans without a problem. Goes well with all veggies. Good luck with your event!

A couple of ideas for buffet dinner (with addition of green salad and roll for each entree). This is my mother's recipe from the 1950's. Good for a large crowd -- of course, some may not be fond of the curry powder flavor.

Curry of the Seas

5 T. butter or margarine

1/2 c. minced onion

1/4 c. minced green pepper

1/3 c. flour

1 T. curry powder

1/4 tspn. salt

1/4 tspn ground ginger

1 can chicken broth, undiluted

2 cups milk

4 cans solid pack tuna, drained

2 cups cooked or canned shrimp, drained

3 cups hot cooked white rice

Saute onion and green pepper until golden. Stir in flour, curry powder, salt and ginger. Gradually stir in broth and milk and cook, stirring until thickened. Add tuna in large chunks, then shrimp -- mix gently and heat.

Serve with rice and such accompaniments as chutney; shredded or flaked coconut; salted peanuts; drained, canned pinepapple chunks; raisins; and banana slices.

Makes 8 servings.

Other suggestions:

King Ranch Chicken Casserole

Beef Stroganoff with noodles

Something I like to make that is elegant and very easy is cranberry chicken. I cut up a lb. of boneless chicken breast into bite size pieces and lay in a baking dish (greased). In a separate bowl mix together 1 can whole cranberry sauce, a small bottle of french dressing and an envelope of onion soup mix. Sounds weird, but is delicious! Bake uncovered 350 for 1 hour, or you can do in the crock. Would be easy to mass produce and keep warm. It freezes well and can be done ahead of time. Enjoy, hope this helps.

How about a roaster full of sauerkraut? I use 3 # 10 cans of kraut & 15 # of sausage. Just layer a can of kraut sprinkle brown sugar & then sausage. Make 3 layers & cook for three hrs.

I would also try ham. These are both very easy to do. If possible try to buy the ham @ Easter & freeze.

I did both of these for open house & they are both walk away dishes.Hope this helps.

chicken teryaki! either make your own (there are tons of super easy recipes) or just buy a bottle. What I do is cook the chicken with the sauce on the stove top, then cut it into cubes and stick toothpicks in them. serve with pineapple. yum!!! also serve some sort of rice with it.

We had an outdoor reception too. We made chicken cacciatore and then froze it. There was Lasagna, we had a cold ham cut up, a cold roast beef, lettuce salad, potato salad, coleslaw (the one that improves each day and can be kept up to 7 days), roast potatoes with peppers. These were mostly things made ahead of time and we shopped the specials. There was a mixture of hot and cold foods, not a lot of oven time was used for a hot day (we were married in Aug.). We also had veggies, dips, etc before hand. A wine punch (we made our own wine in the winter before), and we had pies and wedding cake for dessert. It really was great!

I have no feedback on the food, but the date struck me, a casino theme with 777 would be fun!

Chicken CASSEROLE

Chop and saute onions, celery, red pimento,& green bell pepper. Separately cook macaroni and add cheese(Velveeta and goat cheese)and sauteed vegetables. Add creme of mushroom or other cream soup and fresh cooked chicken or canned chicken. Place in a casserole dish, cover with bread crumbs, and bake in the oven 350 degrees until crumbs are brown. No extra seasoning is necessay when you use a flavorful cheese such as goat cheese. All of my friends love this dish!!!!!Good luck!!!!
