Oprah Winfrey doesn't like her chicken unseasoned and she wasn't so subtle about it 12 years ago.

This was brought to everyone's notice recently after BuzzFeed writer Spencer Althouse managed to dig up an old video from The Oprah Winfrey Show in which Oprah appears unimpressed after tasting an award-winning recipe.

Sharing the now-viral video, Spencer wrote, "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."

The video shows Oprah sampling the $1 million worth baked chicken and stuffing, which was lacking the basic ingredients. After taking a bite, a visibly confused Oprah says, “I do like it,” and pauses for a bit before adding, “I like it very much. I think, did we add salt and pepper? I think we needed salt and pepper.”

Netizens had too much on their plate and decided to share a bite of what they felt about Oprah's brutally honest response.

The video attracted everyone's attention including Oprah Winfrey herself. Acknowledging Spencer's viral video, the talk show host posted a response to what she was thinking after tasting the saltless and pepperless dish.

“Okay, Spencer, I don’t know whatever made you pull that tape out of the vault, but, made me laugh.”

“I always wanted anybody who came on the show, no matter what they did, to have a good experience. And I also wanted to stay in my own truth while allowing them to have that good experience. I was having a moment of trying to decide, Do I want her to have a great time? What is my real moment of truth?” she explained.

Revealing her reaction to the million dollar dish, she said, “Because 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: this chicken needs some salt and pepper.”

Spencer was over the moon as he shared Oprah's exclusive response to him.

And his reaction pretty much summed it up for everyone.
