DENVER (CBS4) – We know he likes chicken parmesan from insurance commercials of the past, but it turns out Peyton Manning likes chicken alone too.
Maybe he was very hungry a day after his big day at Mile High on Sunday, but the Broncos’ new Ring of Famer did an incredibly short job of a chicken breast, with no utensils, while he was on his TV during Monday Night Football.

The video was captured during a hiatus on ESPN’s MNF show “Peyton & Eli”, and when they replayed it on the show, Eli had fun making jokes about how quickly his annoyed older brother gobbled up the chicken.
“Are you breathing? You just ate a whole piece of chicken all the time, ”Eli said to his brother’s dismay.
People on Twitter also gave some pretty clever responses after seeing the video:
Peyton Manning giving the game of himself eating chicken is amazing

I think it’s a duck. Kind of like most of his passes.

Peyton eats like he grew up with a lot of brothers. Believe me, it’s one thing.

Manning’s set is located near his home in the Denver metro area. On Sunday, he spoke about the show “Peyton & Eli” ahead of his Ring of Fame induction at Empower Field in Mile High, saying it was “a fun way to stay close to the game.”
“Eli and I haven’t watched a football game together since 1993… during the fall of my senior year in high school,” he said. “So, so that he and I can watch football together a bit like we’re in a hangout bar, the spectator sits at the bar with us and we talk football.”
And eat chicken, apparently.
