    24 Reactions To The "NyQuil Chicken Challenge" That Give Me A Spoonful Of Hope For Humanity

    From the same internet that brought you greatest hits like the "Tide pod" and "snorting condom" challenges comes a new, dangerously dumb trend that you must not attempt at all costs.

    Did I think I would be back here so soon to discuss another off-the-wall TikTok trend that's extremely dangerous and disgusting? Unfortunately, yes, I did.

    Whether it started as a joke or seriously disturbed taste buds, the internet is popping off at people marinating poultry in doxylamine-DM-acetaminophen.

    NyQuil, y'all. They're cooking chicken in "cough, cold, and flu" medicine!

    The FDA released a statement warning people NOT to take part in the trend because of the dangers of misusing the medication.

    The statement, in part, says boiling a medication can make it more concentrated and change its properties; even inhaling the vapors could be dangerous

    I'm speechless, but Twitter had a lot to say about the disgusting, dangerous trend.

    This is why America needs immigrants and people of color. Y'all are putting Nyquil on your chicken because you don't know about spices. Help us help you. Help us make your chicken delicious. You won't even get sleepy or dead, just a food coma.

    1. Please don't make us add "NyQuil chicken" to the dictionary. 2. Please don't cook your chicken with NyQuil.

    @oneunderscore__ First they came for Nyquil chicken, then they came for Viks Vapor Rub steaks, and soon they'll come for Bengay Burritos.

    Honestly, if you have to be told this, you should go ahead and eat the NyQuil marinated chicken

    Cooking | The NyQuil chicken challenge may be unsafe, but these garlicky Robitussen sheet-pan thighs will get rid of that lingering cough.

    This is disgusting. If you are cooking your chicken in NyQuil, we need to talk. The move is a reduce your NyQuil into a glaze and drizzle it atop the chicken. Heathens.
