Chopped! Chicken Lab Results

After my students didn’t send me their recipes on time I had them do a “Chopped” style lab. In the Food Network show, contestants are given several mystery ingredients that must be made into a specified dish. The students each drew a market cut of a whole chicken and had 50 minutes to create an entree.
