Chicken Hits the Spot

Summer is made for Slow Living and we are loving the easy comfort of serving chicken in new and different ways. Whether sprinkled with world spices and grilled, brined with lemon or miniaturized as a finger food~ Chicken Hits the Spot!


While we love a whole piece of chicken which we can dig into with fork and knife, we are often called upon to create miniaturized chicken finger foods that are easily enjoyed while guests are mingling reception style. For summer, easy and a light one bite is best. Here is a rundown of most popular EC chicken finger food best sellers with spice blends that make each snappy for summer! An Entertaining Company tropical jerk chicken hors d’oeuvre is stylish when offered from a handled tray.

Crispy Chicken and Waffle Slider

At some point chicken and waffles went from breakfast to cocktail hour. A bit of ground cinnamon, ginger and cardamom added to the syrup adds a twist. We like this combo at any time and our clients love the decadence of all day breakfast.

Chicken on Jicama with Guacamole

The refreshing base of jicama, layered with grilled chicken and guacamole, makes this one bite wonder a crowd pleaser. We make the guacamole less spicy than we normally would for this hors d’oeuvres so that everyone can enjoy!

Pulled Jerk Chicken on Crispy Plantain Chip with Mango Jicama Slaw

This is a wonderfully tasty small dinner hors d’oeuvre that layers the bite of jerk with the crunch of a plantain chip and the refreshing sweet finish of a mango jicama slaw. We like to think of this as entrée, salad, and dessert all in one bite.

Tandoori Chicken Skewer

Great for when a plain grilled chicken skewer seems uninspired, and the dinner hour calls for a substantial finger food. The addition of a tangy tandoori seasoned grilled chicken skewer coupled with a bite size endive mango salad makes an easy to eat meal in a few bites. A heady mixture of coriander, cumin, garlic, paprika, ginger, cardamom, and saffron, we love the Tandoori seasoning at the Spice House on Wells Street in Chicago.
