Not exactly sure what Chicken Pickin' is but it sounds tasty. Check this link from Peter Vogle it does use QuickTime for the videos so make sure you've got it installed: Chicken Pickin'

Chuck Norris invented Kentucky Fried Chicken's famous secret recipe, with eleven herbs and spices. But nobody ever mentions the twelfth ingredient: Fear!

you rest your palm on the bridge; the strings are muted.
then you figure out which note(s) you want to play.
pick back and forth while muting the string.
experiement with your pressure on the palm mute.
easy as chicken pot pie.
