It does taste like chicken!
For some unknown reason, DayJob, Inc. served crocodile stew in the cafeteria today, and the server was kind enough to let me have a taste before committing to an entrée.
It really does taste like chicken. I don't know about "just" like, though--I thought there was a distinctive difference, but couldn't pin it down--aroma? texture? It was distinct enough and not to my liking enough that I decided to give it a pass.
Of course, the test was fundamentally flawed, though--no control group and no blinding. Someday I'll have to sample chicken and crocodile, not knowing which similarly-prepared sample is which, to get a real data point.
