We've always said that chicken is the protein that makes the world go round. This
year, the top two 2011 Winning Taste Recipe Contest® winners proved that by
featuring bold flavors inspired by Korean and Indian cuisines. The grand prize winning
Korean Fried Chicken, was entered by Tracy Smith from Moreno Valley, California.
A retail manager, Smith says she has cooked since she was old enough to stand on
a chair by the stove. Although she regularly creates recipes, this is her first
cooking contest win – and her winning recipe is a family favorite.
"I cook this dish at home about every two weeks, and my family loves it," Smith
said. "In fact, for my vegetarian daughter, I create this sauce and put it on tofu.
But the rest of us just love the taste of this dish with chicken."
The first place winning recipe, Bombay Curry Chicken and Peanut Soup with Fresh Thai Basil,
was submitted by Angela Spengler from Clovis, New Mexico.
The second place winner was a creation of Judy Armstrong from Prairieville, Louisiana:
Roulades Baked in a Fresh Garden Caponata. And third place was claimed by
Gloria Piantek from West Lafayette, Indiana, whose Country Club Chicken with Deviled Egg Crust proved that
Pilgrim's new Hickory Smoked Chicken Bacon isn't just for breakfast!
