    I just heard about this and felt like I was alone but apparently chicken is a bitch to eat when you eat it all day.

    Forgive me for I am not an experienced builder by any means but I am an ectomorph and do consume a lot to reach my intake goals.

    Does anyone object to blending chicken? Like having a Chicken Shake? I am talking like 8 oz chicken. I have seen a few articles on this but no professionals seem to say yay or nay.

    OK , so long as it isn't alive. I remember seeing a recipe on TV for a chicken smoothie, all I can recall is chicken and pesto. The bodybuilder making it loved it, the underweight guy who he was giving it to threw up.

    I believe Norman Lear first addressed the topic of blended chicken in one of his seminal '70s sitcoms. Or was that Sherwood Schwartz?

    Anyway, just buy McNuggets! Skip to :45 seconds and/or 1:20 seconds:

    Your body is trying to tell you something. Listen to it. It's unhealthy to eat the same food all the time, even if it's something healthy. I'm guessing you've been led to believe you need a ridiculous amount of protein.

    Vegetarian at heart, pretty much sure I skipped all the posts, but just to say that I think most carnivores hold off on blending their chicken until the final phase of Parkinson's. I bet you didn't know chickens get Parkinson's. Huh?

    Why do you want to eat chicken "all day" let alone blend it? I don't understand. There are plenty of protein sources besides chicken! Confused here.

    I guess that was exaggerated I don't eat chicken all day.
    I do eat a variety of different foods (I put my food intake plan on another thread) and although other foods are a lot easier to eat I find that chicken is the hardest because it requires a lot of chewing.(its also the cheapest to purchase) For someone who is on the go (school and work full time) having time to sit down for 20 min is a difficult task. So I was hoping (with your help) blending would be an alternative solution. I will just try it and see if I like it.

    I didn't think it would be so difficult and so confusing to some of you but thanks for the effort to those who are experienced.

    Well, for sure blending it would solve that problem. It just sounds kinda gross. I think there might be other ways of making it more tender, though. I often put mine in a soup if it has gotten dry.

    Maybe grind it instead of blending it.

    Yeah, if you buy it at a butcher they'll even do it for you.

    I'm confused chicken is not even chewy icon_confused.gif

    The only time I blended chicken was when I made pate and it worked fine but if you're just blending chicken on its own I can't imagine it being that nice.

    Great idea - just had dental surgery and can only eat soft food for a while. Will definitely try blending very over-cooked chicken, but will chop it into fine pieces first.

    Isn't blended chicken merely sausage without the intestinal casing? Or McNuggets for that matter?

    In a sense. Sausage is ground meat using a meat grinder; there's more texture and solid chunks in it. When you use a blender you get something with the texture of a hot dog.
