Episode Description:
The competitors must stay steady and focused as they take on three chicken-themed rounds in this special competition. The chicken in the first basket looks strikingly strange. Can the chefs make it taste delicious? Another unusual poultry product graces the basket in round two. Will the chefs know just how to treat it? And the chefs nervously wonder what a chicken-themed dessert basket might contain.

The show airs Tuesday, February 19 at 9 p.m.

Amanda Freitag, Stephanie Izard and Chris Santos will judge the culinary competition.
