    4 chicken breast, 2 cans cream of chicken soup, 1 can Rotel, 1 lb Velveeta, 12 oz cooked spaghetti, 1 stick butter, 1 cup cheddar cheese. Can you either give me the points for this recipe or help me change this to a WW points recipe?

    My wife & I are two pick eaters.We both like boneless chicken breast but some times we don’t like the crazy seasoning other people put on em.Can you tell me a nice simple way of seasoning chicken breasts.Also,I can use the proper way of cooking them in the oven.Thanks.
    When do I season?before I put em in the oven or while their cooking?

    I have been told by my loving boyfriend my cooking is getting boring. It’s hard to cook for someone that will only eat “some things”. I need some idea’s for chicken, beef, pork, or steak that he might eat. He is very picky!!! Help please. For dinner tonight I am trying a lemon pepper chicken recipe and will cry if he doesn’t like it.
    Thanks for the answers so far but he wouldn’t eat any of that.

    Foods he won’t eat:

    all vegi’s that aren’t green beans
    any kind of gravy
    he won’t eat any bbq sauce unless it’s KC Masterpiece
    no white sauce with pasta
    only homemade sauce (never jar)
    and it gets worse.
    I forgot to add no soups, seafood, or chilis. The man won’t even eat Sloppy Joe!!

    Ok so I quartered a chicken, but now I am not sure what to do with the left over meat/bones. I have heard it is great to put in a stew or a soup, but I was unable to find a recipe that involved leftovers from a quartered chicken. Any help?

    I’m going camping this weekend and I thought I’d have chicken wings for the first night. I’m going to cook them at home in the morning and then pack them up and take them with us. I know they aren’t going to be piping hot when we have them but I also don’t want them to go cold. Also, the longer I keep them warm, the less likely the chance that they will go bad. Do you have any suggestions?
