It is a little bit odd, sort of implies that she's eating both chicken and soup at the same time

She eats a whole chicken and thinks: ''hmm let's eat some soup aswell.'' crazy women.

The sentence may be unusual the but I assure you in the right context the English is fine.

I wrote chick. Its correct form of the chicken too


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/grydolva

Chick: A young bird, especially one newly hatched: "the cattle egrets hatched and reared two chicks" 1.1A newly hatched young domestic fowl: "dozens of fluffy, chirruping chicks hatched out"

Chicken: A domestic fowl kept for its eggs or meat, especially a young one: "rationing was still in force and most people kept chickens". Meat from a chicken.

Based on the dictionary headwords I would not equal a chick to a chicken.

I think the grammar is not correct for this sentence.

Looks fine to me. Think context of a buffet, she has the coice of several dishes and she selects the chicken and the soup (there's obviously just one soup and just one dish with chicken).
