Chicken is a terrible choice for feeding Piranha's. Chicken contains more Hormones, antibiotics, and disease than anything else you could feed them. Stay away from it in the future. Read the forums and get a better diet setup for them.

I suggest you feed them Non Flaky White Fish fillets. Catfish, Haddock, Tiliapia Etc.
I would also suppliment their feedings with Cow Heart and Fish flakes/Pellets if they will take them.

Chicken is ok as a treat as long as it does not contain preservatives. That will mess up your tank/and fish. Fresh killed is your best bet. Most likely he puked from being stressed after eating. Don't worry about it. If you are noticing a mess in your tank after every feeding, cut down on the amount of food you are serving them.
