What is kosher chicken?
For a chicken to be considered kosher, it must be slaughtered by a shochet, a ritual slaughterer. The point of a kosher slaughter is to cause the animal as little trauma as possible. So the chicken has to be cut across the neck in the right spot with an extremely sharp knife. If this process is carried out successfully, the meat of the chicken needs to have its blood drawn out by means of salt. This chicken would be kosher.
