Not one of her favorite things: The Chicken Recipe That Won $1 million

Oprah Winfrey responded to a viral tweet Thursday to explain what was going through her head as she ate unseasoned chicken on her show. It started last weekend when BuzzFeed News writer Spencer Althouse dug up a clip from the archives of The Oprah Winfrey Show and shared it on Twitter. In the clip, Oprah is tasting a chicken recipe that won $1 million — and she seems very unimpressed. Althouse wrote in his tweet, “”I often think about the time Oprah did a cooking segment with a woman whose chicken recipe won $1 million, and Oprah’s jaw dropped when she tasted it and realized the ady didn’t even add seasoning.” The tweet quickly spread around Twitter. People were impressed with Oprah’s classy approach to gently telling the woman the chicken needed some flavor. In a post to the Oprah Magazine account, Oprah herself revealed that her reaction was simply honesty and surprise. She explained in a video: “The truth for me was that I am used to having salt and pepper on my chicken. That’s just the truth. That’s what I was thinking: that this chicken needs some salt and pepper.”
