Maxed out on fried chicken yet? Good. At long last, Leghorn Chicken (959 N Western Ave), a new chicken sandwich spot from Element Collective, opens tomorrow at 11am.

The menu, from Jared Van Camp and Sieger Bayer, is pretty simple: There are two $6 chicken sandwich styles (Nashville hot or pickle brined), which are available in breast or leg pieces on a buttermilk biscuit or house bun. They come with pickles, and you can add other toppings like lettuce, tomato, mayo or cheese. Besides sandwiches, there will be chicken tenders for $5, and daily specials: fried chicken skins on Monday, chicken-fried fries on Tuesday and fried chicken nuggets on Wednesday. Plus salads, hush puppies and oatmeal cookies.

Leghorn sticks it to Chick-fil-A by staying open on Sundays, donating 2 percent of its profits to gay-rights organizations and, weirdly, offering free Leghorn-branded condoms at the counter.

Leghorn is BYOB and cash only. It opens at 11am each day, and when the chicken is gone, it's gone, so we'll find out soon whether it's a lunch-only place or open for both lunch and dinner.
