A Date?? Basic Baked Chicken Query

Hiya there. Tomorrow, or today rather, I'll be cooking lunch (more like early dinner) for myself and a female friend of mine. We're not actually dating, as in having titled it as such, nor have we discussed it. We will be doing lunch then watching movies all day. It has been expressed that there will be cuddling involved during movie time (how's that for passive voice? Yeah, I'm an english major). Would this be a date? Or something like it?

I'm preparing a basic baked chicken and pasta dish. Four boneless, skinless chicken breasts, baked in just a tiny bit of chicken brote with seasonings, sided with chicken-flavored egg noodle pasta (the $.60 variety they sell at Wal-Mart, that stuff is awesome!) and green beans, crescent rolls for bread. I'll be preparing the chicken by dashing on a little bit of the seasoning, wrapping it in alumnimum foil (somewhat lightly), leaving a bit of room on each end for seepage, placing the pieces in a pyrex baking pan and putting just a light layer of chicken broth in there (just enough to touch the chicken). I'll bake it for about an hour or so at 325o until tender and browned. I'll place the pasta and greens on the side.

I'm also baking my famous "Diabetic Coma Brownies" for dessert. These are double fudge brownies with Reese's peanut butter chips, chocolate chips, M&Ms, and caramel.

For everyone: Do these plans sound about right? Any hints on preparing the chicken with the resources I've already expressed? (I don't plan on getting any other marinades, sauces, dressings, etc. Neither of us like that kinda stuff.) Hints on juicier baking technique?

For that gals: Does this sound like a nice thing? I'm not a cook by any means, she knows this. I think she can see that I'm really trying to do something nice and special for her. What would you think if a guy did this for you? (Mind you, there are subtleties which might signify the possibility of a romantic relationship coming between us.)

I'll read your responses in the morning before I start cooking. Responses to the latter question can keep a-flowin' even afterward, however.
