Round 1
Pro

Arguments:

1. Quantity and Popularity

 Americans today eat 160 million servings of cheap, convenient chicken every day [2]

 It is estimated that around 55 million chicken are eaten all over the world on a daily basis. [3]

Chicken is by far the most popular meat, not only in the United States but all across the globe, too. Every country has its particular cuisine, yet almost everywhere we can find traditional dishes and recipes that include chicken meat. [4]
2. Profit

The combined value of production from broilers, eggs, turkeys, and the value of sales from chickens in 2020 was $35.5 billion.....  1 percent from chickens.
35.5 billion/100 = 35.5 million
3,500,000 USD from Chicken
3. Cuisine
This isn't even a full archive, it's just a standardized list. The amount in different, less known recipes could be over a thousand.

Conclusion:
C = Chicken
- C is widespread
- C is profitable
- C is in culture




Con
PRO forgot to compare Chicken with any other form of edible animal flesh, thus failing to fulfill his BoP fundamentally.

1. Popularity

USDA and UN have concluded that Pork, not chicken, is the most consumed meat[1].

2. Profit

Turkey is not 'chicken'. The former is Meleagris gallopavo and the latter is Gallus gallus domesticus[2]. They are different species.
Also, eggs are not considered edible flesh[3] and should not be included in "chicken as a meat".

The entire 2nd section by Pro was unsourced, and even if there are sources, the statistics does not represent any relevant point whatsoever.

3. Cuisine

The length of the article does not represent how popular Chicken as an ingredient is. If anything, it just represents how willing people are to contribute to this article because there are unlisted dishes for every ingredient and Wiki can be edited freely.

C = Chicken
-C is not the most consumed meat.
-PRO has not sufficiently proven that C makes the most $ or the most meals.
