"Chopped Junior" is a reality competition series on the Food Network that is a "Chopped" spin-off in which the stakes are big and the competitors are little as talented junior chefs vie for the championship.

Hosted by Ted Allen, "Chopped Junior" showcases the talents of girls and boys between the ages of 9 and 15 years old seeking to make unforgettable meals from the mystery ingredients under the infamous ticking clock of the "Chopped" kitchen. They bring their unbridled energy, big personalities and unstoppable originality to the kitchen, but only one can be crowned "Chopped Junior" champion, winning the $10,000 prize. The young cooks are judged throughout the season by a rotating panel of recurring "Chopped" judges joined by special guest judges along the way including Laila Ali, Camila Alves, Valerie Bertinelli, Billy Gardell, Sam Kass, Mila Kunis, Tia Mowry, Hayden Panettiere, Martha Stewart and more.

Throughout the season, ambitious young chefs open their baskets to find mandatory mystery ingredients ranging from pickled pigs feet to tofu to birthday cake and are challenged to create appetizers, entrees or desserts before the clock runs out! Over the course of the season, the junior chefs show their incredible culinary skills as they transform their basket ingredients into masterpiece dishes.

"Chopped Junior" is produced by Notional Entertainment.
