They call them "breast chunks" and you have to try them. Pure white meat that has been deep fried in hot oil. Nice side orders of rice, too. It's not your typical fried chicken place, but that's what has made it unique and a Joliet tradition for several decades. Located in downtown Joliet.

the chicken chunks and dipping sauces are to die for. I have been coming here for over 30 years and it just gets better and better. The staff is fun and friendly and the food speaks for itself

If you enjoy fried chicken then you will probably love the chicken chunks at Chicken-N-Spice. The all white meat chicken chunks are unique in taste and size. The crispy coating is fantastic and unlike anything else you will encounter. Combine these with thier chice of dipping sauses and you have a one of a kind eating experience. My only complaint...

This is a very good inexpensive place to go and have chicken related foods. This is not fancy and you do not dress up to go here. Many people eat lunch and supper here. They have an excellent chicken chunks meal with rice, beans and biscuits. The food is very good and filling. Many people come here and order to... More

I love the food at this place. The chicken chunks are great! I love the onion rings! And the biscuits are to die for. The only reason I am not giving it 5 starts is the service. A bunch of young kids running the counter, and they forget things
