I am helping cater a wedding reception buffet for 80 people. We will be serving boneless chicken and pork tenderloin, spinach salad, pasta salad, fruit and grilled vegetables. I am unclear on how lbs of meat to purchase.

Usually with 2 meats, for party portions I purchase 1 pound boneless chicken per 4 plus 1 pound pork or beef per 3. So for 80 people, 20 pounds chicken plus 26-27 pounds pork.

The chicken is in modest size pieces, not big chunks. Someone serves the freshly sliced pork.

A really interesting chutney orbfruit salsa would be good with this menu.
