King Richard the Chicken-Hearted is the main character of the story "The King Who Ate Only Chicken" read on Sesame Street by Luis.

King Richard got his name because all his life, he ate only foods that were made from chicken (it was the only food he knew about). One day, after being fed up with the same meals, the King decides to give anyone who can find a new food for him to eat half his kingdom (and a trip to Bermuda, all expenses paid). Upon realizing that there are many other delicious foods besides chicken, King Richard gives everyone a part of his kingdom, and changed his name to "King Richard the Smart."
