chicken

Raw chicken is a food item which can be eaten by the player, but with the risk of food poisoning.

Obtaining[edit]

Raw chicken is dropped by chickens when they die. Each chicken drops one raw chicken. It does not matter if the player was involved in the chicken's death, and the Looting enchantment will not increase the number of raw chicken drops.

Chickens that die while on fire will drop cooked chicken instead of raw chicken.

Usage[edit]

To eat raw chicken, right-click and hold while raw chicken is selected in the hotbar.

Eating raw chicken restores 2 hunger (Hunger.svg) and 1.2 hunger saturation, but has a 30% chance of inflicting food poisoning for 30 seconds (a Hunger effect). Drinking milk will end the food poisoning immediately.

Raw chicken can be used to heal or breed tamed wolves without risk of food poisoning.

As a cooking ingredient[edit]

Raw chicken can be cooked in a furnace to produce cooked chicken, which restores more hunger and has no risk of food poisoning.

Trivia[edit]

  • The poisoning effect is most likely based on the real-life disease Salmonella, which is notorious for being present in uncooked meats, more commonly raw chicken, raw eggs, and fish.
