Just BARE® Chicken Announces Just 5 Cooking Challenge Winners And Releases Free Digital Cookbook

Marsala chicken recipe named grand champion from 20 5-ingredient finalists. All recipes featured in new cookbook celebrating the joys of simple cooking and living.

SAINT CLOUD, Minn., Dec. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- http://cookbook.JustBareChicken.com — More than 250 cooks and nearly 11,000 people who voted for their favorite 5-ingredient chicken recipes in the 2012 Just BARE Just 5 Cooking Challenge, proving that more and more people nationwide are celebrating simple cooking and living. Just BARE® Chicken—a brand of all-natural, American Humane Certified® chicken that offers no antibiotics, no added hormones, no animal byproducts and no unwanted additives—announces the winner of its second annual Just 5 Cooking Challenge with the release of its first-ever digital cookbook.

From 20 finalists representing 16 states, Marsala Chicken with Roasted Garlic & Caramelized Burst Tomatoes received the most votes and stands alone as grand champion. Submitted by Lindsey Bjorge of Spring Lake Park, Minn., the recipe will be featured in the January/February issue of Whole Living magazine. Five voters were also randomly selected and named Just 5 Cooking Challenge sweepstakes winners, each receiving a free Apple iPad® tablet.

Available now online from desktops, tablets and mobile devices at http://cookbook.JustBareChicken.com, the 2012 Just 5 Cookbook is a busy weeknight dinner saver and fancy weekend entertainment planner. Twenty recipes from the 2012 finalists are included. Each one offers a unique combination of simplicity and creativity. Just BARE Chicken, whose mission is to provide natural, healthy chicken like nature intended, congratulates everyone who participated in the 2012 Just 5 Cooking Challenge.

"What people can love about this recipe collection is how simple, diverse and unique it is, with plenty of ideas to please family and friends," said Just 5 Cooking Challenge culinary judge and Just BARE blogger Lisa Golden Schroeder. "The most effective 5-ingredient recipes are the ones that use ingredients more than once during the cooking process—like using the zest of an orange in a light crumb coating for the chicken, while the orange juice is used in a vinaigrette dressing or sauce," added Schroeder.

Of the 253 original 5-ingredient recipes submitted, 30 semi-finalist recipes were kitchen-tested by Lisa Golden Schroeder and her team of experts and assigned a score from 1-20 points for appearance, taste and overall ease of preparation. The 20 recipes with the highest scores advanced to online voting on Just BARE's Facebook page, which ran November 5December 5, 2012. After nearly 11,000 votes from Just BARE's Facebook fans, Bjorge's Marsala chicken recipe was chosen as the grand-prize winner.
