Do you prefer to eat fish or chicken?

I find that people who eat fish are quite brainy and generally do not put on a lot of weight, while people who eat chicken more often do put on a lot of weight. Although I love chicken, I avoid it as I have to watch my weight. Eating fish is too cumbersome as one has to be careful not to get a thorn prick. I prefer teh small fish which is deep fried so th at I can just chew up the thing without worrying for thorns.

Honestly, I like chicken over fish but I do eat fish depending on how it's cooked. Chicken can be healthy for you though if it's roasted. All the oil inside the chicken should have dripped already. That's why I really like roasted chicken.

I'm nor over weight and I cook a LOT of chicken dishes. We eat fish about once per week (sometimes twice), and we eat chicken three or more times. The rest of the week is pasta, beef, or pork dishes. Chicken seems to be what everyone in the family likes the most, so I focus on those recipes. :-)

I ate both as I have high blodd pressure. This time I have no choice other than chickent and fish. I do it vegetable as well. I love chicken, no matter would increase my weight but if you're budget concious you may settle for fish or for the (fish) canned goods. Have you heard of the century bangus (milk fish)? Wow, that would be a sound meal, a canned milk fish in tausi with rice of course...

I do not eat chicken at all. I like fish though I eat it as often as I can. I normally buy in it the bag out of the grocery store. When I have extra money I will go to the resturant and purchase fried fish.

I don't really like fish, I like chicken. And I don't think chicken makes you gain weight, only if you eat fried chicken all the time, then yeah you'll gain wait, but not because of the chicken but because it's fried. If you eat chicken salad, grilled chicken, baked chicken, you won't gain weight.

I have to say that I prefer chicken to fish. I just find that it is easier for me to cook different dishes. I find that I manage to cook chicken better than I can fish. I guess that if I could find a few easier dishes to prepare fish wise, I might start cooking diffrently. My husband however likes to cook fish much better than chicken and will go out of his way to make a dish if he really likes it.

i actually like both but if i had to choose i would pick chicken. i do like chicken but i eat it once a week or so. i really do not eat that much meat or fish anymore. i basically have been sticking to more of a whole foods diet and i have been losing weight doing so so i will stick to it.

I don't really like to eat fish, although I eat some which is very rare. If it is salmon sushi, I can eat a lot but I'm worried of parasitism. I'm having trouble eating fish as some of it are nasty. Sorry for fish lovers but it is just me. I prefer chicken over fish. It is white meat anyway.

Fish certainly has lesser fat and more protein as compared to chicken. But there is a whole big difference in how they taste. Many people cannot even stand the fish stink. Also, eating fish is a difficult task and needs some proficiency in picking fish bones. Chicken is far more delicious and as easy to eat as nothing. Also, chicken can be prepared in a variety of mouth watering ways. And for the fact, that eating fish makes one brainy, Ha Ha.. I think its another of the myths..

Depends on what kinda fish you are talking about. If you are talking about the ordinary fish which is found in the rivers then I prefer to eat chicken but if your talking about sea fishes then I like the sea fishes better as they are very nutritious and healthy. But on the other hand nowadays because of bird flu its safer to eat fish instead of chicken. Well fish is certainly healthier than chicken and has iodine which is not available in chicken. I specially like the prawn fish cause they are delicious and doesn't contain any bone.

I don't really have a preference between the two, but I do seem to buy more chicken than I do fish as fish tends to be more expensive, at least the kinds that I like. I don't care for fish to taste fishy so I tend to buy halibut or cod. But as both are pricey I usually only buy it for my kids every now and then. Cod is slightly cheaper (the last I checked) so this is the fish I buy for them, when I do buy it.

I prefer non from the two choices. I like to eat pork. But if there will be no pork, I will choose to eat chicken. I love KFC chicken. They have the best chicken in town.

If you deep fry anything you're eating the fat it's fried in and that will put weight on you. Although fish is good for your brain it doesn't necessarily follow that folks who eat a lot of fish and more brainy than those who don't. In fact, down here in Florida where I live I know quite a few doofuses who eat a lot of fish so it sure hasn't helped them any. Chicken is very lean so, if you prepare it correctly, you can eat it without feeling guilty. Stay away from deep frying...remove the skin before cooking since most of the fat is under the skin. I like to marinade chicken and either cook it on the grill, bake it in the oven or simmer it in the marinade.
