Slim Chickens is ready to take wing in Independence. The rapidly growing chicken chain out of Fayetteville, Arkansas, opens at 4641 South Cochise Ct. in Independence today.
Slim Chickens serves tenders (grilled and fried), wings, and an array of sauces (eight dipping/seven wing choices). The tenders make their way onto salads (the Buffalo Blues has them tossed in buffalo wing sauce with blue cheese, celery and greens), wraps, sandwiches (made with Texas Toast) and over waffles. In the poultry equivalent of In-N-Out Burger, the chicken is never frozen and fried to order. The sides range from fried pickles to mac & cheese. Dessert is a fried pie or “Jar Dessert,” a layered, deconstructed crumble or cake.
This is the first of five area locations planned by local operator Adam Herndon. Slim Chickens opens today at 10:30 a.m. and will be open until 10 p.m. It’s open from 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. The phone number is 816-373-0142.[Image via Facebook: Slim Chickens]
