Tastes Like Chicken

There are many foods that taste like chicken. When queried about what something unusual tastes like, there are descriptions of what it is similar to. There are three familiar flavors to compare to:

  • tastes like beef roast
  • tastes like white chicken - light and flavorful like breast meat
  • tastes like dark chicken - more muscle tissue from legs and wings
  • tastes like fish
  • tastes like fishy chicken
  • tastes like liver - a heavy blood flavor

Textures

Many foods that are unusual and deep fried, do well with a flour, egg and cracker crumb coating. Some foods, like gizzards or turtle, require a boiling before they are deep fried or pickled, to tenderize them.

Some foods do not need a batter, and some do. When making pickled vegetables, most of the time, you will prepare a brine, prepare a jarful of raw vegetables, and pour the hot brine over the raw vegetables and seal the jar. The process is very simple. The vegetables retain a partial amount of their original crispness, yet are tender enough to bite. The mushrooms retain a certain amount of firmness, but shrink when boiled.

Turtle, depending on what section of the turtle you eat, tastes different. One part may taste like beef, one part may taste like chicken. Alligator is good deep fried with a Fry Magic batter.

We recently had a venison heart, deep fried. It was pulled from the deer, washed, sliced and flour, egg and cracker crumbed. Deep fried for 4 minutes. It was a firm, dark chicken flavor.

      Thanks for your comment, Angel Guzman. Love him singing in the Muppet Movie... "Why are there so many, songs about rainbows...' crooning in his little, nasal froggie voice. :)

      I've had frog legs before. They were good but I did feel weird. That could be because I love Kermit the Frog, lol.

      Thanks for your comment, Mary Norton. A friend of mine had a snapping turtle laying eggs in a hole in her country driveway. She also had a raccoon that visited the newly deposited eggs and ate its fill of fresh turtle eggs.. Nature is fun, isn't it?

      I have tried some odd foods but I just can't get used to eating turtle. I just feel so bad for them. I don't why I don't feel bad for chickens but I do for turtles. So, I just stay away from it. I love kimchee and pcikled eggs.
