"the idea is not so much to alter the taste as to..."
alter the texture? this one
alter the mode of preparation? not really
alter the look of the food? no
alter the smell? no
alter something at all? not really - "texture" is closest, although...

enhance the taste? ...this is also posssible

Demonstrated on TV? E.g. Ready Steady Cook? On the news?

Demonstrated on TV? The usefulness of the cooking preparation itself has never, as far, as I know, been demonstrated at all - it is, as I say, practically impossible. But the usefulness of the description of the cooking preparation was indeed demonstrated on the TV recently... E.g. Ready Steady Cook? On the news? ...though on neither a cookery programme nor the news.

So it's to make them more tender?

So it's to make them more tender? that's reasonably close - it's to prevent them from becoming less tender while cooking, put it that way

Do people normally have a problem preventing chicken becoming tough? (I'm a vegetarian and don't cook a lot of meat) or are there specific circumstances we still have to find out?

"Tender" and "tough" are words that not only are applicable to hen's bodies, but also to their souls (if..), does the solution of this puzzle have anything to do with this?

Do people normally have a problem preventing chicken becoming tough? well, people occasionally use a technique known as "basting" to prevent poultry from drying while being cooked. The preparation in question is a kind of pre-basting. (I'm a vegetarian and don't cook a lot of meat) No actual animals were or will be harmed in the course of this puzzle :) or are there specific circumstances we still have to find out? once you have identified the process in question, there is no need to find oout any more about it as such

"Tender" and "tough" are words that not only are applicable to hen's bodies, but also to their souls (if..), does the solution of this puzzle have anything to do with this? not with the souls of hens. But the souls of Christian peoples - chuck it, Smith.

hitting them to tenderize them?
throwing them off the roof to tenderize them (since they can't fly...)?

hitting them to tenderize them? no
throwing them off the roof to tenderize them (since they can't fly...)? no - the idea is not so much to make the meat more tender before cooking, but to ensure that it does not lose tenderness while being cooked

is this to actually pre-prepare them, or simply to convince (or just con) people into thinking that this method has merit?

Sorry, I feel a bit lost. I don't know for sure that a Recap would help, but I wouldn't mind trying one :)

Does this (hypothetical) procedure take place when the hens are still alive?
Would it include physical interaction with the hens?
Would it include a particular diet for the hens? a food additive?
some devices or items attached or fixed to the hens?
Would it require the hens to do something they normally would not do?
(Would it apply to cocks as well?)

some devices or items attached or fixed to the hens? it would involve affixing some substance to the hens, for svv of "affixing"
Would it require the hens to do something they normally would not do? yesish
(Would it apply to cocks as well?) no

Would it involve getting the hens to roll around in butter or oil?
