Planning an outdoor wedding for 100. Serving Ham and chicken breasts in nesco roasters along with freezer mashed potatoes 2 vegies and strawberry salad. I would like to make the chicken breasts ahead and freeze and have a sauce/gravy that would go well with the mashed potatoes....also that i can freeze ahead then reheat the chicken breasts/sauce in the nesco roasters. any ideas for a sauce that would go well with the potatoes?

Either the orange Dijon wedding chicken or the chicken Marsala on this site would be great for that; the marsala might be better, but you can make a family size taster of both and decide for yourself. 1 Pound chicken breast per 3 plus 1 pound ham per 5.

if i go with the marsala because that sauce would be better with mashed potatoes...i'll be using just white wine because i don't like marsala... my next question is...how to reheat in the nescos...would i do it the same as the orange dijon (you don't show instructions for the chicken marsala in nescos) Thanks for all the help from Ellen's Kitchen !!!

Suggest you try at least 1 bottle of marsala, it really adds to the depth of flavor. Yes, you reheat same as the Dijon chicken. Do make sure it is thawed in the fridge.
