‘The Balancing Act' and Chicken of the Sea Search for America's ‘Supercook'

Recipe Contest is Looking for Someone Who Can Turn Simple Dishes in to Super Meals

Pompano Beach, FL (PRWEB) May 19, 2010 -- Hit morning show airing on Lifetime Television “The Balancing Act,” and Chicken of the Sea are challenging America to get creative with shelf-stable seafood in a search for the Chicken of the Sea SuperCook, someone who can turn simple dishes into super meals.

Home cooks across the country are invited to share their original recipes using any Chicken of the Sea product for a chance to win the grand prize: an appearance on “The Balancing Act,” a $10,000 cash prize and a feature on a Chicken of the Sea product package. One first-place winner will receive $3,000 and also be featured on a product package. Second- and third-place winners will receive a $2,500 and $2,000 cash prize, respectively.

“SuperCook is more than a recipe contest, it’s the chance for our consumers to tell us how they use our products. Chicken of the Sea is a staple item in kitchens across the country and it’s used every day to make simple, yet healthy and delicious meals,” said John Sawyer, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Chicken of the Sea. “Seafood is an important and vital part of a well-balanced diet and is a great source of protein and heart-healthy omega-3s. Together with ‘The Balancing Act,’ we are asking Americans to get creative and tell us how they make simple, but wonderful meals that fit into their busy lives.”

According to the American Heart Association, American Diabetes Association, American Medical Association and USDA, seafood should be included in the diet twice a week to help improve overall health, as research shows it helps protect against heart attack, diabetes and stroke. Seafood -- which is low in fat, cholesterol and calories -- has also been shown to combat obesity, decrease blood pressure and improve circulation.


To enter, participants must be at least 18 years old and are encouraged to visit to submit:

  • An original recipe featuring a Chicken of the Sea product
  • A 400-word or less essay on why they are someone who can turn simple Chicken of the Sea dishes into super meals that are healthy, nutritious and convenient
  • A photo of themselves
Winners are judged on: recipe creativity; use of Chicken of the Sea product in the recipe; embodiment of Chicken of the Sea’s brand assets of health, nutrition and convenience; and taste and appearance of recipe. The SuperCook contest began May 15 and ends Aug. 15 at 11:59 p.m.
