Pies, and Lime Fizz— are both portable and casual, making for the perfect picnic menu.
Two Days Before: Bake the pies; marinate the chicken.
The Day Before: Fry the chicken (warm it in the oven, or serve cold the day of the picnic); make the simple syrup and squeeze the fresh juice for the Lime Fizz.
Three Hours Before: Skewer the fruit and cheese, and make the salsa.
