* Also subverted for alligators; most people who've eaten alligator say it tastes more like fish than chicken, although the ''texture'' does remind them of chicken.

* Also subverted for alligators; most people who've eaten alligator say it tastes more like fish than chicken, although the ''texture'' does remind them of chicken. That being said, alligators ''eat'' fish, and presumably the fishy taste comes through there (baby alligator is noted to be non-fishy; conversely, chickens fed fish meal generally end up tasting fishy).

* Hilariously played with in an old food network commercial, showing some suburban tourists in an African village given a handful of grubs to eat. One reluctantly eats one and says "Huh, tastes like chicken." The next scene is a suburban backyard BBQ with some African tribesmen attending. They reluctantly take a bite of fried chicken and one remarks in the subtitles "Huh, tastes like grubs."

* In ''AHDotComTheSeries'' it's initially played straight when Professor Zoomar comments that roast giant pterodactyl tastes like chicken; then inverted in a story set some years later, Zoomar has forgotten what chicken tastes like (as it's AfterTheEnd) and upon being reintroduced to it, remarks that it tastes exactly like giant pterodactyl.
* In Webvideo/{{Brains}}, at least one zombie thinks pigeon brains taste like fried chicken.
* In FreemansMind Gordon goes on a long rant about people who say every new meat tastes like chicken and concludes the alien he fried [[TastesLikeFeet tastes like grasshoppers]].
* WebVideo/AskANinja: In episode 61 "OmniPresent".

* Averted in the non-fiction ''Why Did The Chicken Cross the World?'' by Andrew Lawler. The author tries the famed and expensive Bresse chicken and is surprised to find it lives up to the hype.
-->''This is chicken that, thankfully, really does not taste like chicken.''

** A conclusion could be drawn that seasoning and preparation are ''very'' important to the trope, as is texture. Because of the high success rate in the second test, the myth was overall Busted.
