He’s all that and cooks too.
So what’s his favorite dish?
Chicken, according to the Flint native and University of Michigan graduate, who loves to spice up his meals.
His Cajun Blackened Chicken has plenty.
Chicken is the go-to meat for many and one of the best alternatives to the steak and hamburgers that often dominate American diets. It’s also versatile enough to use for a multitude of recipes. In an age when so many are watching their weight and waistlines, chicken is a satisfying bet for any meal.
“It’s sooooo good!” he says.
Brown loves to cook, which seems unlikely when it comes to the schedule of a director, editor, and burgeoning media arts and entertainment executive who has more social media followers than he can remember.
