And with these healthy, easy chicken recipes … everyone’s a winner!

I once readabout another food blogger, who’d used the “winner, winner” line in one of her own posts, and was offended when a reader told her it was a totally outdated phrase nobodysaidanymore.

One after another, people piped up and vowedthat they still said it all.the.time! Me, too.It’s a common exclamationin my house, for any number of reasons that rarely have anything at all to do with chicken.

Interesting side note: Do you know where the phrase comes from? I had no idea! (Thanks, Google …)

Apparently, it dates back several decades to a time when most Vegas table bets were a standard $2, and if you won, you’d have just enough moolah to splurge onthe casino’s special chicken dinner that costjust under (you guessed it…) $2. And really, when you’re in Vegas, what could be better than winning a chicken dinner? (Don’t answer that.)

But you know why these chicken dinners are truly winners, don’t you?

Yeah – it’s because these chicken recipes are all easy, nutritious… and among the most popular healthy recipes other bloggers have ever posted!
