A TOP American chicken restaurant is expanding to Trafford.

Slim Chickens was founded over 17 years ago in Fayetteville Arkansas, by culinary entrepreneurs Greg Smart and Tom Gordon.

And bosses have chosen the borough to open its biggest restaurant to date.

It is set to open in the Trafford Centre on November 2, aiming to become a mid-shopping pitstop. Diners can download their app and receive three free chicken tenders.

There are currently seven Slim Chicken restaurants in England - three in London, one in Birmingham, Southampton, Cardiff and Bristol.

Renowned for its Southern US hospitality, diners can expect the brand’s signature buttermilk-marinated, hand-breaded and cooked-to-order premium chicken.

As well as freshly made food, Slims Chicken will serve up a menu of great music from delta blues to American rock whilst also showing live sports.

For those enjoying the comforts of their home, Slim Chickens will be offering delivery via Deliveroo, Just Eats and Uber Eats or online.

Restaurants operate from 19 US states, mainly in the south and Mid-West.
