Big thanks to everyone who participated in our giveaway! It was a tough decision, but in the end we had to go with Kevina from Brooklyn, NY. We judged based on creativity, balance and overall healthiness of the meal.
Kevina impressed us by remixing our unhealthy fried chicken and french fry platter into this scrumptious and healthy meal.
I would switch the french fries with some yummie & healthy baked sweet potato fries. And then take some lean boneless chicken & stuff it with low-fat ricotta cheese, spinach, and grape tomatoes(cut up). To mimic the crunchiness of the fried chicken, you could coat the chicken with panko bread crumbs & sear it in some olive oil before putting it in the oven. The stuffing inside the chicken would replace the dipping sauce.
Kevina was also kind enough to provide us with a healthy eating tip:
