Buzzfeed employee Spencer Althouse dug up something incredible from the Oprah Winfrey Show vault: The unseasoned chicken disaster.
On Orpah’s show many years ago, they welcomed a woman who won $1 million for her chicken dinner recipe. When Oprah went to taste the prize-winningÂ meal, things went a little differently…
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 lady didn't even add seasoning pic.twitter.com/rfs7PS1Jc3

Many people thought it was hilarious that Oprah’s reaction was the way it was. Many believed she was bold to even ask if it was seasoned… Others thought it was bold of the woman toÂ notÂ season her chicken… Not even salt and pepper!
In a hilarious turn of events, Oprah ended up responding to this hilarious segment.
OPRAH ACKNOWLEDGED MY CHICKEN VIDEO TWEET AND SAID MY NAME I AM LITERALLY SHAKING
Thank you for everything, @Oprah! You are my Mary Tyler Moore. pic.twitter.com/4gPUUyBfpi

Well, there you have it! She did her best to give her guest a positive experience while also asking the obvious, hard-hitting questions.
Lesson learned: Please season your meats!
