Question: Which came first, the Chicken or the egg? Answer: The Zombie!
Zombie Chicken's ability can be considered to be either a blessing or a curse. While Zombie Chicken is more likely to dodge incoming attacks unharmed and attack your opponent directly, it also means that your opponent is guaranteed a free lane to play a plant of their choice and not worry about retaliation. Because of this, Zombie Chicken could be considered a rather poor lead in the early game, when setup plants like Pea Pod and Sunflower are very effective.
Using Vitamin Z is useful for Zombie Chicken, as you may be able to do a big chunk of damage to your opponent.
This is a difficult zombie to deal with, as it moves whenever a plant is played in its lane, especially early-game. Using plants with Splash Damage like Snapdragon have a higher chance to hit it, even after it has moved. Additionally, filling the field with plants can help, as it has a lower chance to end up on an empty lane.
Using tricks can also help if you cannot find a way to hit it directly.
You can also move Zombie Chicken back to a lane of your choice by playing Whipvine, Hot Date or Sweet Potato. However, if you are playing Sweet Potato, be sure to have a plant behind it so the plant is able to destroy Zombie Chicken.
You can also use its ability to your advantage with Anti-Hero plants, as Zombie Chicken will move away from the plant, allowing you to severely hurt your opponent.
