Hellmann’s is always coming up with new ways to make cooking in the kitchen fun and easy for the family. So recently, they unveiled their Chicken Challenge with actor and celeb dad Mark Consuelos, chef Tim Love, and foodie blogger Sissy Biggers. Luckily I had a front row seat to see them go head-to-head live with their chicken recipes and vote on my favorite one!
First up was Mark Consuelos, who made the reigning chicken champ, Parmesan Crusted Chicken. It’s the MOST popular recipe on Hellmann’s website.
But Tim Love and Sissy Biggers weren’t going down without a fight — they prepared the BBQ-Cheddar-Crusted and Chipotle-Lime-Crusted Chicken.
We tried all and voted — full disclosure, I was feeling the Chipotle-Lime chicken, but in the end, Mark Consuelos and the Parmesan Crusted Chicken took the prize!
What’s in it for you? The competition continues online where each week on Hellmanns.us, two chicken dish “contender” recipes will challenge the Parmesan Crusted Chicken. You’re invited to join watch the webisodes online, cast your vote for your favorite recipe and enter the sweepstakes for a chance to win one of four $250 grocery gift cards each week. If 10,000 sweepstakes entries are received, the value of the grocery gift card doubles to $500. Vote now!
