Throw a winner of a chicken dinner together on the fly with these 25 healthy recipes!
Most likely, say…7 times out of ten, when someone in the family asks, “What’s for dinner?” the phrase, “Winner, winner, chicken dinner,” is the saucy reply.
The first time I heard “winner, winner, chicken dinner” was from my sister-in-law at one of our various family functions. I can’t say it was even about dinner, chicken or anything to shout out loud about.
But where’d the phrase come from? I’ve heard it in a myriad of situations but Urban Dictionary says this:
“Years ago every Las Vegas casino had a 3 piece chicken dinner with potato and veggie for $1.79. A standard bet back then was $2.00, hence when you won a bet you had enough for a chicken dinner. So now you know the rest of the story.”
That high stakes Vegas chicken dinner was most likely deep fried and served with an extremely boring medley of frozen veggies consisting of diced carrots, peas and beans that always needed more butter, more salt and please, can someone pass the flavor?? Not much to shake the dice for there.
