    Chicken was once cheap but its called chicken change because it is relatively a small amount.

    I think it has an historical background that dates back to the 2nd World War. During that period, because of the demands for feeding the warring American troops, the American Government through deliberate policy boosted the massive production of chicken all over the Country. But immediately, the war finished, there was a kind of chicken glut all over which led to financial crisis for the poultry farmers as ” prices crashed”. So apparently because of the cheap market prices of chicken, “Chicken change” became a popular parlance for something considered cheap or small in value and that slang has persisted till date.

    Well the term chicken change is an expression just like “it rained cat and dog yesterday.” It’s just an expression for how little one views the amount given.
