Cooked Chicken is an edible Food item that is obtained when Raw Chicken is cooked in a Furnace or when a Chicken is killed by Fire. It restores FoodbariconFoodbariconFoodbaricon when eaten.

As a food source:

Advantages

  • Restores a good amount of hunger points.
  • Lots of saturation.
  • Chickens are farmed easily. They also occasionally lay eggs, which will create more chickens.
  • Does not have a chance of inflicting hunger, unlike raw chicken.

Disadvantages

  • Chickens spawn somewhat randomly, and thus there may be issues finding a steady supply of them.
  • Chickens require Seeds for Breeding.
  • Cooking chicken requires fuel, unless the chicken happens to be killed with fire, Lava, or a Fire Aspect/Flame enchanted Weapon.
  • Each chicken will only drop a single raw chicken when killed, even if it is killed by a weapon with the looting enchantment. This means that other passive Mobs are recommended since they have more plentiful Item drops than chickens.

Trivia

  • Cooked chicken previously had a texture that was "smoother" in appearance. It was then changed to have a black outline, before finally changing once more in update 1.4, which removed the black outline.
  • Chicken was the third food to be added to Minecraft, including raw and cooked versions.
