POCONO SUMMIT, Pa. (WNEP ) – When sitting down to a meal, a lot of families bless the food before eating.

However, a man who was having dinner with his wife in the Poconos says his food was already blessed when it was served.

Ernesto Hernandez says he is not overly religious but says the image in his chicken he just couldn’t ignore.

“I always kid to my wife she’s such a divine cook and I’m about to fork into my chicken and, lo and behold, there’s a picture of what looks like Jesus to me. It really kind of took me back a minute,” Hernandez said.

According to WNEP, the image of a man can only be seen on one portion of the chicken.

“I showed my wife and we all laughed about it and said, ‘Wow, this is amazing.’ It’s so clear, it’s so concise, it looks like Jesus. I’m not saying it’s Jesus, it’s definitely a bearded man,” he said.

He says the face in the chicken means something to him.

“I certainly feel blessed. I’m blessed for the family I have and the life that I have and I’m very grateful for that,” he said.

He says he has shared the photo with friends and has a message for others.

“If I could convey a message to people, it would be: pay attention, there are signs everywhere,” he said.
