Nutritional Breakdown of Fast Food Chicken Items

Fast Food Breakdown: Chicken


When you're on the road, sometimes the occasional stop at a fast-food drive-thru can't be avoided. If you're not into ordering a hamburger and French fries because of the saturated fat and high calories, then chicken could be your choice for a lean protein. Choose your chicken wisely, though; not all your choices are necessarily lean. Check out how these popular fast foods compare.

I think my blood pressure just shot through the roof from seeing those sodium counts. Yikes. Some of these menu items have more than half the amount you should have in an entire day (2,300 mg). Feel free to enjoy these in a pinch, but I definitely wouldn't be chowing on a McChicken Sandwich every day.
