Since the time between announcement of the challenge topic and entry deadline is now extended to two weeks, I was able to raise a chicken from an egg (with steroids, of course), and then cooked it on my stove during the entry time. It helps that I almost always jump on a challenge topic on day one.

I didn't use the Chicken Rub spices that are in my image. That was just for "show".


Just kidding, of course.

I used the spices.


*grin*

What a really difficult topic to shoot for! I'm sure three out of four images will be this same "Chicken in a pot" slogan.

So be it.

They won't all have raised a gorgeous paper cutting of a chicken in only two weeks.

Ha, this is my favorite. I wanted to do the same thing but could never come up with a doable plan and then ran out of time. Congrats on the blue!

Congrats Lydia - most outstanding!
This was my top vote. And I wondered how on earth this chicken came into the pot... really paper? It looks so real and 3D
