    Hey guys. I'm doing a show next Saturday and I'm doing dinner time in no time. these ladies are all very busy teachers with kids of their own. I want something that I can make in 30mins flat, to show them that it really can be done. I've seen one other post about this (something about bbq chicken sandwiches) but my hostess didn't like that idea.... HELP!

    Why don't you do the mexican chicken lasgana or even the chicken penne pasta meal in the dcb that is in the season best.

    I highly recommend the risotto or the Mexican Chicken Lasagna- both have been HUGE hits at my shows!

    My big hit so far has been the chicken penne pasta and garlic bites... shows off the cookware and the DCB and how both can be used that most would not think about. Cookware in the oven??? Stone in the Micro?? yep lots of questions and AhhHaa moments with this one! my best time from start to finish 27 min!

    Lately I have been doing fajitas with pass around salsa OR chicken penne al fresco with garlic bites.

    I used to only do 1 thing, but doing these 2 things (1 is a recipe and the other a compliment) it really seems like a WOW dinner, in less than 30.

    I can't rave enough, and my show totals prove it!!!

    Do you have one dish prepared and ready to go in the micro? I am thinking the interactive part can be preparing the garlic bites?
    How do you organize the two dishes? I would appreciate knowing how you acutally manage this?

    I just did this show and did the mexican fiesta salad pizza...It was a great recipe as I wasn't able to use any oven... Can show that the components can be cooked ahead of time and just prepared in under 5 minutes.

    I have prepared the Mexican Chicken Lasgana the night before for many shows. The recipe states that you should allow it to sit out for about 15 minutes before putting it in the microwave. This worked well for each show that I used it for.

  12. Do you have the recipes for this? I tried to find them on line but don't see them, unless they're called something else.

    The Grilled Chicken Penne Pasta is in the Spring summer 09 Season's Best. It is also on page 41 of the catalog for S/S 09. Garlic bites I believe are just pilsbury canned bisquits with garlic salt or some fresh garlic and oil brushed on. You bake them in the saute pan 8 or 10 depending on how many you are making. Good Luck both are great.
