NyQuil Chicken Is Not Safe To Eat

Turns out, the FDA doesn’t approve this.

TikTok’s latest trend is people cooking their chicken in NyQuil.  I don’t know why, I don’t know how, but I do know you shouldn’t be doing it and here’s why:

“The FDA’s concern with NyQuil chicken is twofold—both the evaporated cold medicine vapor and heated up liquid left behind. “Inhaling, now, a drug product or something of that nature could be an irritant to the lungs,” Deepak Sisodiya, PharmD, chief pharmacy officer at University of California Los Angeles Health told Health.”

Seems like a no-brainer, but my main concern is why anyone would even try it.  Doesn’t sound good; doesn’t look good.  DON’T DO IT!
