I am supposed to do a main dish for a potluck tomorrow... would love to showcase the DCB! Any suggestions? (Mixed ethnicities, all women) (I did the stacked enchiladas before- would like to do something different but a "WOW!") Thanks for your ideas!!!

Re: Potluck...

Chili Cornbread is a good one...other options: pork tenderloin (use sundried tomato or jamaican jerk or BBQ rub) or the Southwest Meatloaf....

Re: Potluck...

This would be a departure from your last recipe as it is not a Mexican dish. And it is SOOO GOOOOD and SOOOO Easy!

SMOKEY BBQ CHICKEN SANDWICHES
1 1/2 - 2lbs of Boneless Skinless Breast
2 TBS Chipotle Rub or Smokey BBQ Rub
1 TBS GARLIC INFUSED CANOLA OIL
Smoky BBQ Sauce (The recipe is on the rubs bottle I believe)
Grilled Onions/Mushrooms/Peppers (optional)
Rolls

Place Chicken in Deep Covered Baker
Brush chicken with Oil. Then shake seasoning over chicken. Place lid on Baker and Microwave for 12 minutes. Take Salad Chopper and cut chicken to desired consistency. Pour in BBQ SAUCE!!!
Stir and place on rolls.

Add mushrooms/onions/peppers to sandwich.

You can easily double this and use those small dinner rolls to make it go much further. I serve this with Bread and Butter pickles and small squares of cheddar cheese to put on the sandwiches. The veggies are better for you but the pickles especially are more traditional on a BBQ sandwich.

Re: Potluck...

Thank you all for your suggestions! I wound up making the White Chicken Chili with a couple modifications (taco seasoning instead of Southwest, and Trader Joe's MILD Salsa Verde). I got several requests for the recipe.... how do I handle this? (Can you make it without the DCB?) Friday I'll be seeing them again- I plan on giving them the recipe, but can you help me with the words to encourage a booking?

Re: Potluck...

This would be a great opportunity to recommend that they buy the DCB! Why not offer it to them for $20 or $25 if they book a show?? You let them know ahead of time that it will go towards one of their half priced items, so they would need to hit at least $300 in sales. You add it on to their party and then you cover the difference, which is usually only only $10-$15 depending on what you charge them. :)

Maybe make out recipe cards with the DCB special on the back? You can tell them that they "could" make it in something else, but that it really works best in the DCB and and I have a way you can get it for more than half price!

Re: Potluck...

Make sure you say it is priced at $34.50 as that is the half price of the DCB. Unless you can afford to eat some of the cost. It is a great booking tool though when you mention the $34.50 price tag!
