Chicken in the corridor

A Terran chicken

A chicken (Gallus gallus domesticus) was a small domesticated avian animal native to Earth. (TNG: "Up The Long Ladder", et al.) A hen was a female chicken, known for being closely protective of its eggs. (TNG: "Loud As A Whisper") Chicken meat and their eggs were widely eaten on Earth and were a primary component of many Human foods, such as chicken wings and fried chicken. (ENT: "Singularity"; VOY: "Renaissance Man")

In an illusion created by the Talosians in 2254, Vina brought chicken tuna sandwiches along on their picnic that were made based on a recipe used by Christopher Pike's mother. (TOS: "The Cage")

In the 2250s, a menu of Earth foods in the mess hall aboard the USS Discovery listed two food items available in the hours of 11:00 to 17:00. The first item, a chicken and ham with synthetic spice, was packaged in a small lunch pack. The other item was roast chicken and a side salad, which was packaged in a big lunch pack. (DIS: "Despite Yourself")

One time when Captain Picard went on an away mission in 2365, Commander Riker strongly urged him to stay on the USS Enterprise-D, where it was safe. Captain Picard clucked at him (the sound a chicken makes) and told him to "stop being a mother hen." (TNG: "Loud As A Whisper")

Later that year, the Enterprise-D rescued several dozen colonists from Bringloid V, along with many farm animals belonging to them, which included several chickens. These chickens were descended from two hundred Wyandotte chickens that been carried aboard the colony ship SS Mariposa. (TNG: "Up The Long Ladder")

While trying one of Neelix's dishes in 2374, Tom Paris noted that it tasted vaguely like chicken but had the consistency of corn husks. (VOY: "Hunters")

In 2377, Tom Paris said that preserved food cooked by Neelix tasted more like chicken when the USS Voyager was in the Void. (VOY: "The Void")

The final draft script of TOS: "Charlie X" featured an ultimately unused line of dialogue in which Doctor McCoy jokingly agreed to give Charles Evans some "voodoo and superstition lessons" if Evans brought his own "chicken's teeth and penguin feathers."
