|"Hulk" confronts "Jericho"|
I'm giving my brain a break from all the serious wrestling talk and having some fun today. As some of you know, I anchor a morning newscast in southern Illinois. Once a month we invite a Family Nutrition Program expert on our show to cook a couple of simple recipes.
Since the station I work for is an ABC affiliate, we dedicate a cooking segment to one of the celebs from Dancing with the Stars. For example, last go around we made Salmon Loaf in honor of Bristol Palin. We also did a Retro Chef Salad for Brady Bunch mama Florence Henderson. You get the picture.
So when I found out Chris Jericho was a part of this season's cast, I asked Joy, our FNP, to come up with something for him. In my opinion, she came up with something pretty good. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you CHRIS JERICHO recipe. Each letter of Jericho's name is an ingredient in this dish. By the way, it is very good. Try it sometime.

Make marinade by combining hot sauce, honey, & Italian seasoning. Place chicken in the marinade, cover for 1 to 2 hours in the fridge.
Make sauce with Italian tomato sauce & cream of celery soup. Add rotini, eggs, red beans, corn, & onion to the sauce.
Drain marinade from chicken & add pieces to the other ingredients. Stir well. Bake in a covered casserole dish at 350 for 1 hour. During last 5 minutes, add jalapeno cheese & let melt. Serve with a green salad and ice water.
It's pretty easy to create. Try it and let me know what you think.
