On a mission to serve the best freshly prepared, cooked to order chicken in town, iconic US brand Slim Chickens has arrived in Leicester, opening in Highcross shopping centre.
From testing chicken recipes in a garage, Tom Gordon and Greg Smart went on to open the first Slim Chickens in Fayetteville, Arkansas, in 2003 with the ambition of creating magnificent, freshly cooked chicken for guests, fast. Over a decade and thousands of happy guests later, the business has grown to over 100 sites in the US alone, and is now taking the UK by storm.
Renowned for its Southern US hospitality, diners can expect the brand’s signature buttermilk-marinated, hand-breaded and cooked-to-order premium chicken. House specialties include crispy tenders and buffalo wings, alongside a whopping range of 14 house-made dipping sauces in innovative flavours including Slim’s signature sauce, Blue Cheese, Honey BBQ, Sriracha Garlic and, for those brave enough, the fiery Inferno.
Also, on offer is a wide selection of fresh chicken sandwiches, wings, salads and wraps as well as sides such as fried pickles and mac & cheese, and hand-spun shakes in flavours such as Oreo, popcorn and caramel.
For those enjoying the comforts of their home, Slim Chickens will be offering delivery via Deliveroo, Just Eat and Uber Eats or simply go online for click & collect.
