Rebecca Spence of Vancouver has won the second annual Foster Farms Fresh Chicken Cooking Contest, the company announced Friday on Twitter.

Spence’s recipe for Crispy Orange Chicken with Fennel, Avocado and Orange Salad was selected out of about 2,000 entries.

She said she created the recipe because of a desire to learn how to cook with fennel.

As a reward, she will get $10,000 and year’s supply of fresh chicken from Foster Farms, which has operations in California, Oregon and Washington.
