I don't mind it dressed up - I'm just a terrible cook and need suggestions so I'm not choking down dry chicken or pork LOL. I'm used to cream sauces, pan frying, etc - that my husband cooked. He is away on business for a few weeks which makes it a great time for me to start IP but now I gotta do my own cooking - which would normally consist of Lean Cuisines and take out.

Look into a george foreman style grill. This works great for grilling meat and veggies.

Get Chef Verati's "My Ideal Recipes" from your coach! It is filled with recipes for Phase 1 meals and there is actually "breaded" meat included. He explains that you don't count the IP products used for the breading because you don't eat a whole packet, you only eat about 1/4 of one. There are lots of different ways to prepare your protein included in the cookbook and it is well worth the cost.

How long do you cook the meat for? How much chicken stock? At what point did you add the veggies?

Did I say I suck at cooking?
I'm sure you don't suck at cooking. You just haven't done it. And now is a perfect time to learn it. Just pick a recipe that seems doable, follow it exactly, and each time you do it you will learn things by leaps and bounds, so that pretty soon you'll have a good idea "what happens if I add this or change that..." And soon you'll have ideas of your own too - you'll be modifying recipes before one month is over, I can guarantee it!
