TikTok has been the birthplace of some of the most interesting – and most questionable – trends. And we have to say, the new madness of marinating your raw chicken in NyQuil To be pretty questionable!
The dish – dubbed “sleeping chicken” by users – has caused quite a bit of noise. People on the app are pouring a lot of potion over their food and letting it marinate before cooking, with some pioneering chefs claiming the recipe helps them cure cold symptoms.
Um, duh! NyQuil TO BE a cold medicine, after all…
But the trend has attracted a lot of attention Food and Drug Administration stepped in to warn against it! We have to say, chicken in cough syrup didn’t look good at first, and now there’s even more reason to stay away from it.
The FDA says when drugs are boiled, they become more concentrated. Higher concentrations equate to more strength, which can be dangerous – especially since the drug makes you drowsy. There is also a risk that boiling will change the properties of the compounds with each other. In addition, inhaling the vapors during the cooking of “sleepy chicken” can even cause lung damage!
Yes, it’s not safe. On top of that, the people in these videos are taking more than the recommended dosage – that’s another matter in itself. You don’t want to overdose on dinner!
In general, chicken is for cooking and eating. NyQuil is used to treat illnesses and help you sleep. Are we good??
