I am getting tired of eating the same things all the time or having to eat something different from my family's meal I prepare!  Does anyone have good dinner recipes with maybe chicken or pastas that is not rough on the guts that a 7 and 3 year old might like as well?  Thanks.

ditto tjf... i love allrecipes.com
all the recipes are rated, so if you stick with 4 stars and up, you never make something that you won't like.
most things i've made are very easy to substitute if i know i can't handle a bunch of milk or cheese, just cut it back or whatever. there are tons of great chicken recipes on there!

i just finished looking up a recipe for chicken and rice soup and i think i'll make it tonight!

oh and also read the reviews for each recipe you're interested in. members give good advice like "too much salt" or whatever and if several people say that, you know to cut the salt.

I have a few recipes that I've concocted myself. But you have to use your own judgement if it will bother you or not. I take chicken breasts - I get mine at Costco because they already have a broth in the breast, cut them into strips, roll them in bread crumbs (I sometimes use the Italian flavor), and cook in Olive Oil. They're crunchy and tasty. I usually dip mine in honey and the my kids love them! Also, you can take a chicken breast, slice it in half lengthwise so you have thin breasts, if you can have cheese such as cheddar (I'm lactose intolerant but have no trouble with cheddar) place the cheese on the chicken breast and roll up. Insert a toothpick to hold it together and bake. Serve over rice. This is my variation of Chicken Cordon Bleu.

I have tried the breaded chicken several times and ways, and it's a no-no for me.  But, the cheesy chicken sounds like it should be ok for my guts so I'll give it a try. Thank you. Does anyone have any good recipes that use avacados?

FYI, I use Galaxy Veggie cheeses. They're really good and my husband doesn't even know the difference when I make grilled cheese sandwiches. I also make a pasta dish with the smoked provolone slices. Having said that, any aged cheese like cheddars - the lactose goes away. The Galaxy cheeses are found in the produce section of most stores or health food stores. Enjoy!

I do a thing that goes a little something like this:
- Cook some pasta;
- Make a simple cheese sauce;
- Add tuna and lemon juice to cheese sauce;
- Salt and pepper to taste (if thats your thing);
- Wack in an oven dish;
- Put mashed potato on the top - top with cheese & sprinkle salt;
- Bake in oven on about 160 till golden

I serve it with some very steamed colitis friendly vegies - carrots etc
