Iron Chef - Phase 1

A few months ago my family did an Iron Chef competition for dinner.   
We had two teams, the boys team and the girls team.  We all voted for a few different "secret ingredients" and then we drew one from a hat.  We all had 1/2 hour to come up with our recipe.  The ingredient was CITRUS! Then we all jumped in the car and went to the store.  We had a $40 limit.  We were to do one main dish and one side dish.

The girls did orange chicken over rice with ambrosia salad as a side.
The boys did citrus and rosemary pork chops with a vegetable side.
We all voted on presentation and taste.
The girls won because our dish was unmistakably citrus.  Although the boys dish was tastier!

So Iron Chef #1 was a success!!!
