The epitome of a good Chicken Sandwich is SIMPLICITY! I will never forget the experience of submitting my recipe in the Puratos 3rd Annual Sandwich Competition! 😎
32 ENTRIES, 17 RECIPES CHOSEN, 11 FINALIST, 3 WOMEN, AND COOKING LIVE IN FRONT OF AN AUDIENCE & JUDGES!
My work station was front and centered underneath the spotlight. When the show started, I was completely zoned out.. focusing on making this recipe from scratch. They chose 2 of my recipes, so we had to make 4 sandwiches total. Everything was moving nonstop and it was so INTENSE! So crucial to the point where we almost ran out of time and I had to yell at my Chefmate.😅 Luckily, she didn't take it personal, she was willing to do anything to help me. ⏩⏩ I bombed my 1st sandwich bc the juices from the meat made the bun soggy while waiting for my turn to present after 4 contestants. The 2nd sandwich was the one I had the most confidence in. I knew I had to SELL this sandwich with my words. I grabbed the mic and made it sound different and delicious! It was THICK, JUICY, CRISPY, CRUNCHY, SWEET, SPICY, SOFT, AND FLUFFY with sauce flavors of jalapeno, bacon, cheese, garlic, honey, and a pinch of cayenne. ⏩⏩ We waited for the deliberation and I was on the edge of my seat. When they announced the winners >>> My recipe was RUNNER UP! 2ND PLACE! 😱😱<<<🎉🎊🎉🎆🎇
The crowd literally went wild (my family and class) as I sat there CRYING! I accepted my award and cried some more..lol I won off of GOOD FLAVORS and CREATIVITY! 😮😁😋🙌🏽🙌🏽 The guys were upset and being sore losers, but I was happy to represent for the ladies while accepting my award.💋💄👠 I was granted A SCHOLARSHIP from the company, A MATCHING SCHOLARSHIP from the school, A REIMBURSEMENT CHECK, and my account released from being on hold. I've never told anyone that it was THIS CHICKEN SANDWICH that helped me graduate! I'm forever grateful!!!!😍🍔🍗🍴📸💰💰💸🥳😇💥🎓💅🏽👏🏽👏🏽
