Enter your best, original chicken recipe at EatChicken.Com for a chance to win $50,000.
As it says on the site…
The contest is sponsored by The National Chicken Council, and the US Poultry & Egg Association. It is open to anyone in the United States who has a great original chicken recipe. There will be one grand prize winner along with regional winners. The monetary prizes total $74,100.
One winning recipe will be selected from each state with the winner receiving $100. The state winners will then compete in regional cook-offs. Each of the nine regional winners will receive $1,000 and will be invited to participate the National Cook-off to be held in San Antonio, Texas, on May 2, 2009. The Grand Prize is $50,000. There is also a $10,000 Judges’ Choice Award.
The nine finalists in San Antonio have to cook their recipes twice - once for the judges to taste and the other for display. The recipes should provide four to eight servings and are judged on taste, appearance, simplicity, and overall appeal. Recipes using a grill are not eligible.
Winning recipes will be published in a chicken cookbook published by the National Chicken Council. You can submit as many recipes as you want before the deadline of August 31, 2008. You can enter online or print out a mail-in form.
