Kim, I would definitely do rice or rice pilaf instead of mac and cheese, if you are going to have pasta salad. It also goes better with the chicken.

The chicken curry would be fine, and goes with the rice. Allow 3 whole eggs for each 2 people for deviled eggs.

Chicken marsala amounts per my recipe on this site.

string beans, 60 pounds ready to cook
pasta salad, 6 pounds dry pasta per 100 plus add-ins
meatballs, 10 pounds per 100, 3 quarts sauce per 10 pounds

Consider adding some kind of salad or slaw.

If this saves you time, trouble, or money, please make a donation, maybe a dime per guest, to support this site. Thanks.
