Chicken and milk


Rabbi Chaim Tabasky

29 Tishrei 5766
The prohibition against eating milk with meat stems from the biblical admonition against "seething the kid in the milk of the mother" . Since chickens do not give milk why is the consumption of their flesh similarly prohibited?
Chicken and meat is a rabbinic prohibition because chicken may easily be confused with meat.
