I have been diagnosed an egg allergy. Is it still okay to eat chicken?

In brief: Different allergens

If you have already consumed chicken and tolerated it, then you should be able to continue eating it.
Chicken and egg allergy are different proteins and most patients with egg allergy do not have chicken allergy. However, anyone can be allergic to or develop an allergy to any food so the best way to know is based on how you've tolerated it in the past. An allergist can help in the evaluation.

In brief: Depends

Chicken allergy is not related to egg allergy.
A patient could be allergic to both. Check with your allergist. Someone who has egg allergy does not necessarily have any other allergy (including chicken). Chicken allergy is not common. Check with your allergist.
