I saw the Prophet ﷺ eating chicken.  

البخاري:٥٥١٧حَدَّثَنَا يَحْيَى حَدَّثَنَا وَكِيعٌ عَنْ سُفْيَانَ عَنْ أَيُّوبَ عَنْ أَبِي قِلاَبَةَ عَنْ زَهْدَمٍ الْجَرْمِيِّ

عَنْ أَبِي مُوسَى يَعْنِي الأَشْعَرِيَّ ؓ قَالَ رَأَيْتُ النَّبِيَّ ﷺ يَأْكُلُ دَجَاجًا

We were in the company of Abu Musa Al-Ashʿari and there were friendly relations between us and this tribe of Jarm. Abu Musa was presented with a dish containing chicken. Among the people there was sitting a red-faced man who did not come near the food. Abu Musa said (to him), "Come on (and eat), for I have seen Messenger of Allah ﷺ eating of it (i.e. chicken)." He said, "I have seen it eating something (dirty) and since then I have disliked it, and have taken an oath that I shall not eat it ' Abu Musa said, "Come on, I will tell you (or narrate to you). Once I went to Allah s Apostle with a group of Al-Ashʿariyin, and met him while he was angry, distributing some camels of rakʿat. We asked for mounts but he took an oath that he would not give us any mounts, and added, 'I have nothing to mount you on' In the meantime some camels of booty were brought to Messenger of Allah ﷺ and he asked twice, 'Where are Al-Ashʿariyin?" So he gave us five white camels with big humps. We stayed for a short while (after we had covered a little distance), and then I said to my companions, "Messenger of Allah ﷺ has forgotten his oath. By Allah, if we do not remind Messenger of Allah ﷺ of his oath, we will never be successful." So we returned to the Prophet ﷺ and said, "O Messenger of Allah ﷺ! We asked you for mounts, but you took an oath that you would not give us any mounts; we think that you have forgotten your oath.' He said, 'It is Allah Who has given you mounts. By Allah, and Allah willing, if I take an oath and later find something else better than that. then I do what is better and expiate my oath.' "
