If you’re doing weight watchers from what I remember you are allotted a sensible dinner. I HIGHLY recommend using recipe’s from the Eatingwell website. http://www.eatingwell.com. The food is delicious and health concious and it won’t break the bank.

Good luck with your dieting, sounds like you are doing great!

@Lillindy: That website is really fantastic!  I’m excited to try a bunch of her recipes, especially that Broccoli Cheese & Potato soup!

I just joined weight watchers onine two nights ago! Haven’t had a chance to look at recipes yet, because I’ve been busy reading all the tips on the site. I’ve just been having soups and eggs/toast for dinner the last few nights. This weekend I plan to make some new recipes, though. My co-worker (who is also using Weight W.) swears by Hungry Girl (the website) for great recipes, too. I haven’t had a chance to look at those yet, either, but she said this woman *Hungry Girl* has weight watchers points for all the foods and great tips. She also is going to be on The Cooking Channel (new channel?) with a new show starting this Sunday.

My co-worker mentioned to me yesterday a great, sweet treat. Warm sliced apples for 40 seconds in the microwave, add a little cinnamon and fat-free whipped cream. Only one point for the whipped cream! Yummy! I can’t wait to try this one!

I like the WW General Tso’s Chicken recipe, it’s actually quite good. Although it doesn’t call for enough corn startch and takes a long time to thicken so be careful not to cook the chicken in the sauce the entire time it’s thickening up or else you get rubber chicken.

I actually use a lot of simple recipes from allrecipes.com that are extremely flavorful, simple and super low fat.

Skinny Taste is my FAVORITE – everything is SO good!

I have one of the Weight Watchers cookbooks, and that helps, as well as a backlog of cooking light mags which have great recipes.

@jindc: You could probably do it with another meat or a meat substitute if you wanted. The chicken just takes on the flavor of the sauce and salsa.
