If I were a kid, this would be my favorite:

pamperedcheflady's Ranch Chicken Salad.

Crispy Ranch Chicken Strips

4 boneless, skinless chicken breast cut into 1” strips

¼ C mayonnaise (I figure into WW 1/8 C- would be less pts if you use light mayo too)

1 packet Hidden Valley Ranch seasoning (or 3 TBSP)

¾ C bread crumbs (I figure just ½ C into WW)

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Mix ranch seasoning into bread crumbs. Brush mayonnaise onto each chicken strip. Dip chicken strips into bread crumb mixture to coat evenly. Arrange on a baking stone. Bake 14-16 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in the center. Serve on top of salad. Serves 4. 6 points/serving without dressing.

This was my mom's favorite:

Chicken pistacio salad



main meals
POINTS® Value: 8
Servings: 4

Preparation Time: 10 min
Cooking Time: 25 min
Level of Difficulty: Easy
Course: main meals



Ingredients
1 tsp black pepper
3/4 tsp table salt
1 head romaine lettuce
1/2 cup salted dry-roasted pistachio nuts, finely ground
4 breast uncooked boneless, skinless chicken breast
1 Tbsp Carapelli Extra virgin olive oil
Instructions

Preheat oven to 375, mix the nuts in a pie plate with 1/2 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp pepper. Press chicken into the nuts. Heat one tsp of oil in a skillet and cook the coated breasts for 2 minutes on each side . Place in baking dish and bake for 15-25 minutes. Serve on top of lettuce with any added veggies and dressing of choice.


This is the first recipe I made and it was so good. I'm about ready to make it again. Make sure you buy shelled pistachios or it will tear up your hands trying to shell them all.

This was my mother in law's favorite.

Baked Beef Ziti

POINTS® Value: 5
Servings: 8
Preparation Time: 20 min
Cooking Time: 50 min
Level of Difficulty: Moderate

Ingredients
12 oz uncooked ziti
1 tsp olive oil
2 medium garlic clove(s), minced
1/3 pound raw lean ground beef
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp dried rosemary
1/2 tsp table salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
28 oz canned crushed tomatoes
1 cup part-skim mozzarella cheese, shredded
Instructions
Preheat oven to 350°F.

Cook pasta according to package directions; drain and set aside.

Meanwhile, heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat; add garlic and sauté 2 minutes. Add beef and cook until browned, breaking up meat with a spoon as it cooks, about 3 to 5 minutes; drain off any fat and set pan back over medium heat.

Add oregano, thyme, rosemary, salt and pepper; stir to coat beef. Cook until herbs become fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add tomatoes and bring mixture to a boil; reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes.

Spoon a small amount of beef-tomato mixture into bottom of a 4-quart casserole dish (just enough to cover surface); top with half of cooked ziti. Next, layer with half of remaining beef-tomato sauce and half of mozzarella cheese. Layer with remaining ziti and then top with remaining beef-tomato sauce; sprinkle with remaining mozzarella cheese. Bake until cheese is golden and bubbly, about 30 minutes. Slice into 8 pieces and serve. Yields 1 piece per serving.

(I made this 6 servings for 7 points each so I got more. I had brand new spices when I made this and the spices in this were a little overwhelming. Next time I make it I will probably half them or just use Italian seasoning instead. But, it's SOOOO simple to make and really good)
