Chicken rules the roost when it comes to winning recipe contests.
Two North County Women won national recipe competitions using chicken as the basis for their top-prize entries: Janis Jones of Poway for her Onion Chicken recipe, and Karli Kent of Carlsbad for her General Tso's Asian Loaf, reported the North County Times.
Jones, 47, entered the Dream Dinners contest sponsored by the national meal-preparation company, which has several locations in San Diego and Riverside counties.
"I was surprised," she said, when she heard she had won. "I asked whether more than two people had entered."
