"Chopped" Dinner Party

My husband and I are hosting a Chopped dinner party this Sunday. We're trying to decide what 5 ingredients to put in the main entree basket. I"d like to use an interesting meat and then local, fresh vegetables but am at a loss on how to get started. I definitely want to include one special, X-factor, ingredient.

Anyone ever attempted this before?
Even if you have not, do you have ideas?
