I accidentally killed a chicken, and now people hate me. How do I get them to like me again?

At least it's not a Zelda game. You'd already be dead then. – FAE Nov 13 '11 at 11:55

Leave the area for 3 ingame days. If you return, people will like you again.

Equally, find a guard and sheath your weapon. Then go to prison or pay your bounty.

Get away from the place, into the wilderness, and wait 3 days before returning.

Please see the accepted answer above yours. It covers the same ground. – ヴァイシャリ Feb 5 '12 at 14:04

Well how many people saw? If the whole village saw, yield to the guards. If only a few people saw kill them and your bounty is gone. For example when I killed the last witness of my crime (I attacked Thalmor and farmers), a bounty worth 4000 was removed from Whiterun.

Alternatively, if you're playing on PC; look up codes to remove bounty. Also you could just kill everyone in the village. Unless some are essential, but there shouldn't be any if you finished the main quest.

I say just restart to where you didn't kill the chicken and every thing will be fine.

Why dislike? This is a good option? Whoever disliked should get tortured. – Jim Nov 25 at 1:17
