Chicken is a common meat in almost every culture, be it European, Asian or African. Chickens are raised everywhere, and served in a variety of ways, both expected and unexpected. Some cultures and regions might offer similar fowl, such as duck or even pigeon, but you will almost always find chicken on the menu. If you're really not sure about what you are ordering, learn how to say "vegetables only" to be on the safe side!
