(Family Features) Chicken is one of America's favorite foods, so much so that every American ate an average of 84 pounds last year. Although it's a great go-to ingredient for a family dinner, it's easy to get tired of the same old chicken recipes. To help combat chicken fatigue, Hellmann's® mayonnaise has teamed up with Chef Tim Love to launch the "Chicken Change-Up," offering simple and family-friendly recipe ideas, tips and tricks to help inspire parents when preparing the nightly meal.
