Grilling for Company

Planning, preparing and hosting the perfect corporate catering Sydney can be a very stressful job if tackled alone. Having guests over for dinner can be a fun experience if you enjoy entertaining, or a stressful one if you do not. Whether you are planning a casual get together or a more formal dinner party or even a double date, your grill can be your secret ingredient for providing a memorably delicious, stress-free meal. Here are two recipes to get you started on your menu for having company come over.


2 Cornish hens
Butter flavored non-stick cooking spray
Seasoning salt
Chicken seasoning plus, optional


Clean the Cornish hens good and pat dry. Season according to taste and lightly spray with the butter flavored cooking spray. Grill the hens for about an hour or until the internal temperature measures 180 degrees on a meat thermometer. For even grilling, be sure to turn the hens every fifteen minutes or so.

If you prefer, the hens can also be frozen and then reheated for an easy make-ahead meal. This is also an economical choice for stay at home date nights or last minute dinner guests since you can just pull them out of the freezer, warm them in the microwave or oven and have a fancy dinner in minutes.


2 strips of bacon
1 chicken breast
Any raw or frozen vegetables you like.
dollop of butter
seasoning to your own personal taste


Lay out aluminum foil for however many of these you are going to prepare.

On the foil put the meat on first and then any combination of vegetable toppings you like: potatoes, carrots, peppers, mushrooms, squash, tomatoes, chilies, asparagus, cabbage, the possibilities are endless! Whatever you and your guests enjoy. Or consider following an ethnic cuisine and adding Italian dressing, barbecue sauce, peanut sauce, or other bottled marinade to make a tasty, yet simple variation.

Cook on grill until chicken temperature reaches 180 degrees. What is so neat is you can have a group of people over. They all can have their own meal fixed to their own personal liking. You put on the grill, leave them alone and you can have a good visit. Another benefit of this meal is the ability to customize the meal depending on allergies. If you want to have a Thai night, but have a friend who is allergic to peanuts, they can make their packet without the peanut sauce.
