I can think of two movies off hand that use that phrase, Lion King and Fern Gully, and I know there are a few more 90's movies but I can't remember them. Are they parodies of an old commercial, or was it some catch phrase?

Well. the fact is that a lot of meats that most people aren't familiar with eating really do taste like chicken, and since chicken is a meat that most people have eaten, it was a good way to describe how the less eaten meats taste. For example, armadillo, frog, alligator and turtle really are similar to chicken. Hence, tastes like chicken. I agree, though, that it is used too much and about things that have nothing to with the phrase itself.
