Delicious Dishes for National Chicken Month

September is here! That means football is officially back at Wicked Willie's Sports Grill and fall is just around the corner, which everyone already knows. What you might not realize is that the month of September is designated as National Chicken Month. 

One delicious and fun way to celebrate is to head on over to our Lake of the Ozarks family restaurant and order one of the amazing chicken dishes on our extensive menu. Why celebrate chicken? Well, in addition to the fact that it tastes great, there are quite a few health benefits when you eat it too. 

Healthy Chicken Facts
Chicken is an excellent source of protein, which your body uses for muscle growth and development. Protein also helps to support a healthy body weight. The high level of the amino acid, tryptophan, increases the serotonin levels produced by the brain, which boosts your mood and consequently can relieve stress. 

The many vitamins and minerals present in chicken do a body good too. B vitamins help with maintaining a healthy body weight by regulating digestion and boosting metabolism. They also boost immunity. Vitamin D helps a body absorb calcium, and vitamin A lends to good eye health. Eating chicken even lowers your risk of having high cholesterol and developing heart problems. 

Delicious Dishes with the Bird 
We featured our awesome appetizers (that just happen to go great with every sport!) a couple of week's ago, and there are quite a few items on that menu with chicken as one of the tasty ingredients. These include:  
  • Fresh Jumbo Chicken Wings
    -Buffalo (with Spicy Black Pepper-Dijon Buffalo Sauce)
    -Grilled Jamaican Jerk
    -Sweet & Spicy Pineapple Habanero
    -Teriyaki Chicken Wing
  • Buffalo Chicken Nachos
  • Smoked Chicken Fajita Nachos
  • Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps
  • Southwestern Chipotle Chicken Rangoon
  • Buffalo Chicken Potato Skins
Here, we have a few savory main dishes featuring Chicken Month's star. There is a wonderful variety of flavors involved, so there is sure to be something on this list your taste buds can't wait to try. (And most likely, you'll be wanting to taste try all!)
