** 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.

However, there was one meat that both Tory and Grant thought tasted like chicken in test two: [[spoiler: Boar]]

This idea was tested on the Food Network show ''Food Detectives'', and found to be true for almost all meat from animals that don't have hooves. The scientific rationale is that the muscles are made mostly of fast-twitch fibers and lacking in slow-twitch, so basically any small and light animal that's not a fish will tend to taste close enough to each other that the brain's sense memory defaults to the most commonly-eaten meat of that type; for most westerners, that means chicken. Fast-twitch fibers are the vanilla ice cream of the flesh-product world, and don't really have much of a flavor to start with. It holds especially true if the animals in question are relatively young and haven't picked up a lot of environmental flavors; alligator tastes fishier if the animal's been swimming around eating seafood for a few years, and most market chickens are about 6-8 months old when they're shipped.

** And then Chicken Joe gets saved from being eaten by [[CannibalTribe cannibal penguins]] once he gives them a Squid on a Stick, who remark "tastes like chicken" and request more of those.


Added DiffLines:

* When ''Series/LastWeekTonightWithJohnOliver'' did a segment on chicken farmers, they showcased news reports where meats were likened in taste to chicken, such as lizard, alligator and armadillo. Then John discussed how that analogy is hardly translatable to other senses ("If I said 'everything looks like tables' or 'everything feels like cushboards' you'd think I'm insane").
