Among both amphibians and land-based (jargon: terrestrial) animals, some degree of "chicken-like" flavor developed and has persisted among all the tetrapods. In fact, among the vast and varied four-legged community, there are only minor exceptions, such as the evolution of "beef-like" and "pork-like" flavor among mammals.

A gourmet once challenged me to eat
A tiny bit of rattlesnake meat.
Remarking, "don't look horror-stricken
You'll find it tastes a lot like chicken."
Now chicken I cannot eat
Because it tastes like rattlesnake meat.
— Ogden Nash, "Experiment Degustatory"
Daniel: This tastes like chicken.
Samantha: So what's wrong with it?
Daniel: It's macaroni and cheese.
"People always try to get me to eat something they caught, and say, 'It tastes just like chicken!' If it tastes like chicken, then why don't you give me some chicken! The cheapest goddamn meat on the planet!"
James (human): What's the matter Vakarian? You chicken?
Garrus (alien): I don't even know what that is, though I've heard everything in the galaxy tastes like it.
