Some great chicken recipes that can feed large groups are chicken and biscuit pot pies, chicken a la king, Mexican chicken and green chile casserole, and chicken chivito sandwiches.
To make chicken and biscuit pot pies, blend flour, seasonings, chicken stock, and butter in a double boiler. Stir constantly for 10 minutes, then add 2 pounds of cooked potatoes and sliced carrots. Add boiled chicken, chopped parsley and browned mushrooms, and mix gently. Top with a tea biscuit mix, and bake.
Using a preheated outdoor grill or indoor grill pan, make chicken chivito sandwiches by starting with boneless skinless chicken thighs and assembling them arugula, green olives, tomatoes, sherry vinegar and mayonnaise on top of pre-bought rolls.
Ready to serve in less than 30 minutes, chicken a la king is a great crowd-pleaser made on the stovetop with sauteed mushrooms and cubed chicken combined with chicken stock, unsalted butter, all-purpose flour, whole milk and diced pimentos.
Mexican chicken and green chile casserole is baked in the oven at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for one to two hours. Made with 12 cups of diced and cooked chicken, shredded monterey Jack cheese, sour cream, salsa, and four cans of cream of chicken soup, the filling is layered between corn tortillas and cooked until bubbly.
