I like rabbit. My grandmother made it often so we ate a lot of it growing up. Domestic rabbit does taste a little like chicken. Wild rabbit has more of a gamey flavor, and the meat can be kind of stringy and tough unless you braise it or cook it in a stew.
Funny the things I used to eat when I was young that people simply don't eat these days. Along with rabbit, squirrel and raccoon were occasional treats, and we didn't find it one bit strange to eat those things. I don't even hear about folks hunting them anymore.
Tonight we're having ribeye on the grill and oven-fried sweet potatoes.
