  • In the latest of bad ideas on the internet, NyQuil Chicken is a thing now.

    NyQuil Chicken not only looks gross, but according to doctors, it’s actually dangerous.

  • Gross right?

    In an interview, physician Aaron Hartman says, “Taking medicine with food typically isn’t dangerous, since many people do it with their daily dosage of medicine. When you cook cough medicine like NyQuil, however, you boil off the water and alcohol in it, leaving the chicken saturated with a super concentrated amount of drugs in the meat. If you ate one of those cutlets completely cooked, it’d be as if you’re actually consuming a quarter to half a bottle of NyQuil.”

     

  • Here's the Tik Tok video showing someone making it

  • Another reason why it's dangerous

    The fumes from the boiling cough medicine is a combination of acetaminophen and decongestants. The fumes could lead to liver failure or other health complications. There’s an absolutely horrifying discussion that happened on 4 chan. They call it “Sleepytime Chicken”.

  • Don't do this

    First of all, this looks absolutely gross.  Secondly, it’s dangerous.  Hopefully the people in the videos and pictures have cooked up the chicken as a joke.

    Hopefully.
