They'd be okay to offer, but it'd be best to find a balanced food she's willing to eat. You could check into Carnivore Care and Hills A/D, they're both meant for sick/weak pets. CC can be bought online from Amazon, and Hills A/D should be available from your vet. You could also try other canned foods & see if anything sparks her interest. The plain cooked chicken & insects are fine to give her until you find some other options to offer - you want to make sure she keeps eating enough. Make sure that you're prepared to start syringe-feeding her just in case she goes off those too.

What temperature is her cage, by the way? It might be a good idea to bump it up a couple degrees while she's recovering - the "wobbly and weak" bit concerns me, though it's possibly just from lack of food.
