I can’t help but wonder how it is that chicken got elevated to such a lofty status in our society, and it just sort of snuck in there too. Somehow it became the benchmark for good tasting items with no real distinct flavor of there own. Just ask someone to try some alligator and they will tell you it tastes like chicken. Which also begs the question, why do people spend so much money on quail when it just tastes like chicken? Seems like a waste of money to me, just buy some chicken and call it quail. There you go, instant fancy meal on a budget. On the other hand, if you ever find yourself in a situation where you are forced to slurp down some octopus or turtle, just tell yourself that it’s just chicken. It will go down nice and easy.
But the real question is, why does chicken get to be the defining flavor? Why doesn’t everything taste like frogs legs? Hmmmm? Get’s you thinking doesn’t it? But I suppose it could be worse, everything could taste like Brussels Sprouts. Now there’s an unsavory thought. Bring on the chicken and other chicken flavored meat products.
