The Chew: Wayne Brady

Entertainer and Let’s Make a Deal host Wayne Brady visited The Chew kitchen for Extra Value Friday, where he learned how to make these Chicken Fried Steak Nuggets with Clinton Kelly.

Wayne Brady said that ice cream is one of his favorite comfort foods. He also loves to share baked macaroni and cheese with his 11-year-old daughter, Maile. He is more of a mellow, friendly dad so that he can keep the lines of communication open.


Brady hosts Let’s Make a Deal, weekdays on CBS, and The Chew audience had some fun in a quick food-themed version, Let’s Make a Meal. You can also see him as the host of BET Honors, airing Monday, February 24 2014.
