Seeking simple chicken recipes that can be made in advance

Hello, home cooks! I need ideas for chicken dishes that meet my very specific, novice-level criteria.

1. Utilizes boneless, skinless chicken breasts/cutlets and no other part of the bird.
2. The entire dish can be made 4-8 hours in advance and reheated to serve. Assume I can make no additional food at the time of serving -- not veg, not pasta, nothing.
3. Unambiguous cooking criteria for the meat. I can check internal temperature and I can set a timer. But no gauging pinkness. No pricking to see what kinds of juices run out. No assessments of tenderness. I can, however, brown it.
4. Relatively simple preparation. I can prep one or two veg, but something like pad thai has too many ingredients and too much in and out of the pan for this situation.
5. No mushrooms.
