When we started the sign-​up sheet for the Blue­ber­ries from Chile Recipe Chal­lenge, we assumed we would end up hav­ing a 12 course dessert tast­ing menu. The morn­ing of Feb­ru­ary 4th, we were in for a sur­prise when we entered the con­fer­ence room. “It smells like chicken in here!”

Of the 15 dishes cre­ated, one stood out right from the begin­ning: Linda Luka’s Blue­berry But­ter­milk Chicken. It was truly a win­ner, win­ner, chicken din­ner kind of sit­u­a­tion. Fruits from Chile kindly spon­sored this recipe chal­lenge, fea­tur­ing a Fit­bit Charge 3 as the grand prize.
