What Would Be a Good Entree for a Progressive Dinner?

What Would Be a Good Entree for a Progressive Dinner?

Q: Our neighborhood is having a progressive spring dinner in a couple of weeks. We'll all start at one house for appetizers, split up for dinner at several houses, then come back to the first house for dessert.

My husband and I are hosting for the entree course — do you have any suggestions? It would need to be mostly made ahead.

Editor: Katherine, do you know what the other hosts are making? My first inclination would be to find that out and try to coordinate your own dish in some way. After that, what about a simple dish of braised chicken that could be cooked ahead and then warmed up? Or you could make and cook pasta ahead of time, and then at the last minute sauté it to warm, and toss with vegetables and pesto.
