I ve take 3 antibiotic pills thus far. It felt like something was stuck in my throat so i blew my nose , when I did this big fleshy chicken looking mass came out of my nose. What could that possibly be?

you seem to have nasal polyp superimposed with infection.
antibiotic given for sore throat will help you reduce your sore throat .
but as you are mentioning a mass coming out of you nose it looks like you have a nasal poly.
nasal polyp is common in person with allergy asthma but it may develop otherwise also.
nasal polyp are fleshy shiny round in gives a sensation of some foreign body in nose also it can extend to throat. in this condition you need to visit ent specialist he will do nasal endoscopy. by this procedure v can see inside nasal chamber and inner part of throat . and he will treat accordingly
thank you

It is only Throat Infection. Continue the Antibiotic
Saline gurgle is advised. For pain any NSAID like Brufen+ paracetamol
combination can be taken.
The mass came from the Nose may be the mucosal discharge from throat and nose
sometime hardened - if your respiration is more free after that it should be like that
