Go exotic.

Halal chicken and rice.

Chicken Tikka Masala or Rogan Josh.

Teryaki chicken, or stir fried Lemon Chicken.

I've done a very pared-down version of this:
Chicken Stuffed with Prosciutto and Fontina
Rather than stuff it, I've layered it and baked it off. First, saute the chicken in a bit of butter/oil to brown and cook about half-way or so. Starting with the chicken, then layer a few sauteed mushrooms (I use baby bello/cremini), followed by prosciutto, then topped with fontina. Bake until the chicken is done and the cheese is melted. Serve with seasoned rice blend and asparagus - or any sides you would prefer.

IF you so happen to have preserved lemons or quick access to them, this is a nice dish that allows you to start it earlier, then do the oven baking closer to when your neighbors are expected. A little exotic without having a strong enough flavor profile that might make it off-putting to someone who doesn't like strong flavors.
Moroccan Chicken with Preserved Meyers Lemons and Green Olives

This last one is a winner - it's one of the first I tried when I started to branch out into unfamiliar ethnic cooking and a favorite of Himself...and me. As written, the seasonings are very mild. I double everything. Same goes for serving size. We polish off the recipe's "serves 4" between the two of us easily. I prefer serving it with Israeli couscous - it's the bigger of the two grains and is the one that gets cooked for a short amount of time. If it's hard to fine, just use orzo.
North African Style Chicken

Hope you find a recipe you like. Just make sure you relax and have fun visiting with your neighbors.

OMG - guuys!

thank you all so much! this might turn out to be the most difficult decision ever! it's 7:30 am and I'm drooling and stomach growlings.

I want to say Stop! Stop! can't take it anymore... but I'd be lying.

At the top of my list have been

Chicken Cordon Bleu,

Chicken Kiev and that

Moroccan Chicken with Presrved Lemons (gotta jar in the fridge- made last year, hope it is still good!). Also

"poor man's veal cutlet" with chicken, of course! LOL! that can be prepared well in advance and cooking at the last minute only takes seconds.
