What does "chicken" mean? If a guy call a girl chicken, what does it mean? Is that derogatory? The context: the girl ask "Are you alive?" and the guy answer "Yes, chicken". So I have read that means "jovencita".
In the USA calling a woman a chicken is also a slang word with a couple of different meanings, usually sexual and NOT something you'd want to call a real love interest of yours. Chickens are not the kind of girls you make your wife or bring home to mama (for the most part).
