Easy make ahead chicken dish

For our Passover dinner there are 3 courses before we ever get to the entree--and lots of pots, baking dishes etc. I'm looking for an easy, make ahead chicken dish that will just have to be heated up. Would love to use boneless thighs and breasts. But I don't want to lose great taste. All suggestions welcome!!

Cauliflower Is it bad?

Have a cauliflower which has started to get brown/black spots on the outside. What is this? What causes this? And most important--can it still be eaten?

Lost my favorite brisket recipe

We love a recipe where a ton of onions are sautéed and the brisket sits on them while they cook. I believe there are chipotles and beer as well. It is a bit spicy and tastes a little like barbecue. My brain cells are frozen and I just can't remember. Can you help??
