The National Chicken Council (NCC) and USA Rice Federation announced winners of the “Chicken and Wild Rice Recipe Roundup” consumer recipe contest this week.  Together with the California Wild Rice Advisory Board (CWARB) and USA Rice, NCC conducted the online contest to remind consumers about the great taste, convenience, and versatility of rice and chicken.

During the four week campaign, NCC, USA Rice, and CWRAB posted recipes and interesting facts on social media to promote the contest.  Consumers submitted over 70 recipe entries and the contest was viewed by over 1,200 unique visitors.  Three winners received gift cards and Aroma rice cookers:

  • First Place: Marvelous Mediterranean Chicken and Wild Rice Bites
  • Second Place: Creamy Tuscan Chicken & Wild Rice Bisque
  • Third Place: Sesame Chicken and Wild Rice Spring Rolls

The award-winning recipes and photos will be published on the USA Rice, CWRAB, and NCC websites.

“U.S.-grown rice and wild rice are excellent partners for chicken to promote the endless global flavor possibilities following the MyPlate healthy eating recommendations,” said Tom Super, NCC vice president of communications. “We are pleased to have three new chicken and rice recipes and look forward to working with USA Rice and CWRAB in the future.”
