Allergy/sensivity: It appears that you are either allergic or sensitive to chicken. Food sensitivities are extremely common. The most common foods people react to are dairy, wheat/gluten, eggs, corn, soy and almonds but it is possible to react to any food, including chicken. The obvious solution is to avoid chicken. Sometimes if you avoid a food for a year or two the sensitivity lessens and you will tolerate it. ...Read more
