Celebrating National Fried Chicken Day with a variety of recipes

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. - The general manager of Slim Chickens in Sioux Falls, Jeremy Lloyd, shares some recipes with a variety of flavors.

His first idea could be a good breakfast recipe with chicken and waffles. A trick he suggested was putting finely chopped almonds or pecans in the butter to give it a sweeter taste on top of the waffles.

Making chicken wings and adding parmesan cheese or a certain sauce like buffalo on top of them can add a different flavor as well.

To get a good flavor for fried chicken, Lloyd said to put the chicken in buttermilk to give it a unique flavor. Having a variety of dipping sauces can make for some unique flavors as well.

Slim Chickens currently has one location on Minnesota Avenue in Sioux Falls. The second location on Louise Avenue will open Monday, July 9. To celebrate National Fried Chicken Day, the Minnesota Avenue location will serve the "Chick's Plate" for $5. That includes 3 chicken tenders, one side and one drink.
