Oh yes. I didn't grow up eating much chicken, and when I started cooking
in the SCA, dealing with mass amounts of raw or even cooked chicken
squicked me. My friend Sarah helped me with that, until finally we did Hen
in Broth for several hundred and I ended up deboning and chopping the
chicken (it was for a dayboard) as it came out of the soup. I'm much
better about chicken now.
