What does the line “Excellent, i' faith, of the chameleon's dish. I eat the air, promise-crammed. You cannot feed capons so.” mean, from Hamlet?

> “Excellent, i' faith, of the chameleon's dish. I eat the air, promise-crammed. You cannot feed capons so.” <sub>*Hamlet*, act 3, scene 2</sub> What does this sentence mean? What are the chameleon, air and capons representing? How does this relate to Hamlet's feelings toward Claudius?
