There is no beast more frightening (or ridiculous) than a fully enraged chicken.

In order to benefit from its Enrage effect, the player must first find a way to raise the total health of this minion. Without this, the Angry Chicken is worse than other 1 mana minions. For this reason, this minion is best played in a deck filled with minion improvements. Effects which trigger enrages, such as Cruel Taskmaster or the mage hero power Fireblast can be useful for triggering the enrage.
The Angry Chicken is generally considered a poor choice for most decks. However, in combination with the right effects, it can be extremely powerful. For example, commentator TotalBiscuit, in his "Lord of the Arena" video series (Episode 49, at 6:22), ended up with an Angry Chicken with 8 Attack after buffing it with Mark of the Wild and Enraging it with a Mad Bomber.
The card's comical potential can also be a reason to add it to decks.
Angry Chicken was originally simply a 1/1 with no special ability, intended to be "kind of a joke", and "something for everyone to latch on to as "the worst card"". The Enrage was suggested by Quality Assurance "homie" Jeff Manners.
The Enrage effect might be a reference to the Legend of Zelda franchise, where chicken are completely harmless until you beat them several times, which then causes them to attack you.
