What is Sleepy Chicken?
Sleepy chicken is a trend which gone viral everywhere on TikTok in a very bad way. The famous TikTok trend Sleepy Chicken is also known as NyQuil Chicken. The main motive of this trend was to cure a cold and flu. Doctors suggest not to try this trend at all. Otherwise, you will regret trying this stupid trend. It is more like a night curse to people who tried this trend.
Wanna know about the recipe? Here it is. Basically, what Tiktok users do is, braise their chicken in the solution called NyQuil. NyQuil is a medical product that helps with colds and flu. They put the solution on the chicken and deep fry it. The whole recipe is meant to provide nighttime relief from colds and other problems like flu. But it results out to be very dangerous for health. This stupid recipe trend also got banned by TikTok.
Why is Sleepy Chicken so dangerous?
In a recent interview, a doctor named Jeff Foster talked about the sleepy chicken trend by saying the idea of making this trend was so stupid. He said without any knowledge about the side effects of food like this will obviously result in a disaster. Also, it can kill people. As this recipe of curing a cold and flu doesn’t have any medical approvals, then the chances are high that it can cause more problems to consumers. It was also found that some of the consumers of this recipe have lost their minds. Yes! You heard it right.
Believe me; whosoever invented this recipe is such a stupid person. He must have done some research about the chemical and its after results. He tried to play with the lives of people. Also, doctors always say that without proper consultation, you should not take anything like that. They also mentioned, “We have medications which are scientifically tried and tested for a reason. Unless and until you are not a doctor or know things like that. The chances are high that you can overdose on the chemical.”
Another interview was taken with MIC.com, It says when you cook this recipe with medicine like NyQuil, firstly you boil the water and alcohol in it, then leaving the chicken saturated with drugs in the meat. Sounds scary, right? It is actually as scary as it sounds. If you somehow ate one of those pieces which are completely cooked, the chances are you are highly consuming half a bottle of NyQuil. Due to this, you can have problems like food poisoning, which will lead to major diseases like diarrhea. Other than that, you can also face breathing problems which can even lead to life and death situations.
