Is it possible to use "infinitive" after chicken out?

She chickened out to go there by herself.

That's not how we'd phrase it, no.

Most people would say:

She chickened out of going there by herself.

    Alternate suggestion: "She chickened out and didn't go there by herself." Oct 5, 2021 at 16:22
  • another alt: "[When it came to] going there by herself, she chickened out" [] portion is very malleable.
