MMmmm, Chicken - Zer Netmouse
I bought a whole roasted chicken and ate some of it for my dinner tonight (with green beans and cucumber as sides). I simply adore roasted chicken. One of my favorite things about having a roast to myself is that I get both oysters. When I was a kid we had to share those, as in my family they are considered the choicest part of the bird.
What's your favorite part of a chicken to eat?
Parts is parts; I like it all
I eat bonless chicken breasts or compressed chicken in fast food restaurants and had forgotten it had parts, really
I don't like to eat chicken

This is the first time I've heard that chickens had oysters. Um...what are they?
What are they? They're yummy, that's what!
(Wikipedia explains. I hadn't known the name for them until now.)
Thanks - I was going to ask as well. :)

As the picture in wikipedia
shows, if you have a roasted chicken turned with the back up, the oysters are on either side, close to the spine, nearer to the wings. They are rather oyster-shaped, sitting in a concavity of bone, and they are tasty and rich.
Being in the boniest part of the chicken, I don't think they are typically included at all if you get a chicken that's already butchered into pieces, such as commercial fried chicken, but I'm not sure.

It is tasty, but there's not much meat there, usually. I prefer the oyster. But the name is amusing. :)

I'm weird. I like the skin (I know, it's bad, but there it is) and liver a lot. But otherwise the breast meat tends to be my favorite.

I like the pope's nose, the gizzard, and the heart. And the skin. Drumsticks are the most fun to eat. But I usually buy boneless skinless breasts. (Never heard of nor tried the oysters -- I suppose it makes sense though -- I'd heard of prairie oysters, but never those on a chicken.)
So...chickens have oysters. Who knew?
Next you'll be telling me clams have legs.

What can I say? I like breasts. ;)
Funny I grew up in total ignorance of the oysters.
I think I ate them by default being the family scrounger when it came to food but I never found them extra tasty.
