Use of articles inconsistent

I just took the mastery test for Food and got two questions wrong. One was wrong because I didn't use the article, the other was wrong because I did use the article. "I cook meat" can be translated either "cocino carne" or "cocino la carne." It was marked wrong when I included it. "We cooked chicken" can go as either "comimos pollo" or "comimos el pollo". I didn't use the article and it was marked wrong. Either way is correct for both sentences.

I agree with this post. It 's quite ridiculous and very arbitrary.
