It’s chicken week, and the cooks get the chance to compete for the prize of a lifetime – getting their spice marinade onto Nando’s menus in over 450 restaurants across the UK.
In the Level Up challenge, the cooks have to create an extraordinary side dish to go with chicken – and they have just one hour to do it. Later in the day, the cooks discover who landed a spot in the restaurant kitchen where they’ll be safe from elimination and get to compete for a prize, and who will have to fight for survival in the pop-up.
The hub opens its doors to the public with both kitchens serving chicken-themed menus. When service is in full swing, one of the kitchens has problems with undercooked chicken, and as service continues, things go from bad to worse as the pressure gets to the rookie cooks. As well as the undercooked chicken, there’s a backlog of orders, arguments between the cooks and a major food spillage.
This week’s Knives Out elimination challenge recipe is a viral hit from social media – the TikTok breakfast sandwich, a one-pan cheese and egg toastie. When the final result is tight, the mentors face a tough decision.
