Do NOT buy a "cheap scale". You will be better off spending a bit more and getting one that performs well.

Ground red pepper and cayenne are the same thing for the most part so you definitely could substitute one for the other. For soloman, maybe you SHOULD invest in a cheap scale so you can weigh you meat. And you definitely should drain the liquid from canned veggies. Obviously, these are my opinions, but hope it helps.

Uh without a scale HOW am I supposed to figure out what 1 1/4 lbs of chicken breast is? With a commercial breast is there a rule of thumb to calculate this? While I'm at it, if I use canned veggies, do I drain the water off before I put them in the mix? Just wondering if there might be too much liquid if I don't. Thanks,

If you decide to use canned vegetables, you would want to drain the liquid. Thank you and enjoy!

I have "red pepper flakes," but not ground red pepper. Will ground cayenne pepper do?

I fixed this recipe. I also fixed the pilaf rice as it suggested. Both were pretty good. My eight year old loved it all.

Now, If I could only get to the recipes, all would be great! Let us know so we dont leave you. Your recipes are important to me and I'm sure many others.
