Frogs legs, when cooked properly are very good. They don't, however, taste like chicken. The texture if very similar to chicken. But the flavor is somewhere between chicken and clams.
The problem with frogs legs is that if they are overcooked, they can be very tough indeed. If you purchase them from your local grocer's freezer, try saute'ing in a little butter or olive oil, with garlic. Don't be alarmed if they twitch. The whole muscle is intact as a complete leg. Again, cook until just done. Do not overcook.

Frog's legs are rich in protein and are best cooked simply and briefly. Dust in seasoned flour before sautéing in butter. I suggest spraying the pan with a puff of olive oil, followed by a knob of butter. The oil helps prevent sticking.
Your description of how to cook them sounds lovely Linux, a lot like Nigella Lawson. Just curious, how do you handle the "twitching" ?
I said "sticking", sweetie, not "Twitching".
Thanks for the compliment about my sounding like Nigella Lawson, but her cooking doesn't, IMO, have soul.

No, I'm not talking about "sticking", that I can handle. You didn't read what Goodweed had to say?
...froglegs twitch when cooked fresh?They only twitch if they are extraordinarily fresh--if you catch them yourself, clean and cook them quickly, they may twitch. If they have been refrigerated or frozen, they are quite thoroughly dead and will not jump out of the pan.
I have been quite disappointed with the ones on buffets-they taste muddy to me. I think most of those are imported from Asia.
