Chicken is pretty essential, though I wouldn't call it my favorite. That title belongs to freshly baked ham.
I. LOVE. HAM.
^ I would host a regular Ham Night in its honor, just like The Pirate Captain, were there demand for it among my friend group.
(Bison's my favorite, though. Bison chili is the shit. There's no going back to beef after that.)
Edit: As for chicken... It's fine. It depends on the dish. I agree with whoever that chef was -- maybe Anthony Bourdain? -- about it being what you eat when you don't know what you want to eat. It's almost too versatile to have a personality of its own.
I like chicken when it's just been cooked, but I can't stand the flavor of it after it's been reheated... it takes on the "how wet birds smell" flavor quality that turkey has that I really, really, really hate. Seriously, that horrible birdy flavor can kick in my gag reflex quicker than almost anything
freshly cooked chicken is awesome though, if you know how to cook it and don't make it half raw or overly dry
"Poultry is like meat, except when you cook it rare. Then it's like bird-flavored Jell-O." - P. J. O'Rourke
of course, if left to my device I'd probably eat an entire grass fed cow every month because I absolutely adore beef... and I actually really love leaner cuts and grass fed as well whenever I can find it... it tastes all the cowier
Cowier...that's an awesome word.
