Food Symbolism 3--Chicken
Chicken forms part of the symbolism of the dragon and phoenix in Chinese culture. At a Chinese wedding, chicken's feet, referred to as phoenix feet, are often served with dragon foods such as lobster. Chicken is also popular at Chinese New Year, symbolizing a good marriage and the coming together of families, and serving the bird whole emphasizes family unity.

Depends where in China

In some Southern provinces in China, people are wary of attending year-end festive dinners hosted by the boss, when chicken is served - whole.  A chicken among the dishes is a message from the boss that someone is getting the sack, and the poor man/woman selected is the person seated in chair towards which the chicken head is pointed.
