    We have company this evening and everyone is having Chinese.

    I was going to be good and cook for myself but after a reply to my diary thread, I thought it'd be interested to see if you guys have any tips on eating Chinese without going crazy on points??

    Thanks in advance.

    chicken, prawn or vegetarian options are generally your lowest in point options.. my favourites are:

    chicken or king prawn with mushroom - both 3 points
    vegetable / mushroom chow mein - 4.5 points
    mushroom foo yung - 4.5 points
    prawn chop suey - 3 points
    chicken chop suey - 6 points
    chicken and cashew nuts - 6.5 points
    special (mixed meats) chop suey - 6 points

    unless i'm having chow mein, i normally order a portion of boiled rice and just have half of it for 3 points :)

    Yes, you did indeed tell me it was nice, however that was a wee while ago honey. Had it a couple of times. Its really nice. :) we sometimes split a portion of it for lunch, so its only 1.5 points then split the rice. Its a really filling lunch! love Chinese!!
