Cooked Chicken is obtained when Raw Chicken is cooked in a Furnace, or when a Chicken is killed in Fire. It restores FoodbariconFoodbariconFoodbaricon when eaten.


  • Can restore a good amount of hunger points.
  • Lots of saturation.
  • Chickens are farmed easily. Plus, when farming, they may occasionally lay eggs, which will create more Chickens.
  • Does not have a chance of inflicting Hunger, unlike Raw Chicken.


  • Chickens somewhat appear randomly, and if you can't find one, no chicken.
  • They require seeds to breed.
  • Cooked chicken must be cooked in a furnace, which requires some fuel, unless the chicken happens to be killed with fire, Lava, or a Fire Aspect/Flame enchanted weapon.
  • Each chicken will always drop one raw chicken when killed, even if it is killed by a weapon with the looting enchantment, which makes other passive mobs drop more of their drops.


  • The Cooked Chicken used to have an old texture being more smooth. Then, it was changed to look like what it does today, but with a black outline. It was then changed for one last time in 1.4 to get rid of the black outline.
  • Chicken was the third food to be added into Minecraft, including raw and cooked versions.
