My bad; I imagined that the muscle meat from the tail was slow roasted over the course of the previous night.
I wondered the same thing. The only thing I tasted that truly tasted like chicken was the scorpion I ate in Thailand off of a meal cart, but I think that was more towards the spices they used to cook it and not the taste of the insect. Amazingly, Meal Worms taste like shoe string potato chips and are excellent snack food when drinking copious amounts of alcohol. But Frog legs taste like frog legs and alligator tail tastes like alligator; not chicken as so many claim.
