Providing delectable deep-fried chicken and home-style southern side dishes since 1952, Kentucky Fried Chicken boasts savory options from buttery biscuits to enormous family-size buckets of chicken. A majority of available meals include original recipe, extra crispy, or grilled chicken. For customers seeking KFC chicken with modest levels of fats and calories, grilled items remain the best possible options.

Health Tips:

  • Average Meal – An example meal of, one extra crispy breast, one extra crispy drumstick, a single serving of mashed potatoes and gravy, and a 20oz. soft drink total more than 800 calories, 34 fat grams, and over 1,700 mg of sodium.
  • Dipping Sauces – KFC features sauces like ranch, FLG sauce, and honey mustard, which each add an additional 100 calories per serving. Less calorie-rich sauces include honey, barbeque, and sweet-n-tangy.
  • Side Dishes – Side dishes generally up the ante by providing additional calories, although some sides provide much smaller numbers in terms of calories, fats, and sodium. One biscuit possesses nearly 200 calories along with 7g of fat. Healthier choices for customers include green beans, corn on the cob, sweet kernel corn, and mashed potatoes without gravy
  • Sandwiches – Four out of five KFC sandwich options contain sodium levels over 1,000 mg. Sandwiches featuring fried chicken possess about 20g of fat and over 500 calories.
  • Desserts – KFC menus feature a wide variety of desserts as well, such as apple turnovers, chocolate cookies, and lemon cakes. Each possesses over 200 calories and represents a large portion of the ideal daily percentage of sugar intake for the human body.
  • Diets – Restrictive diets may find little to eat at the fast food chain. Gluten permeates the menu, though vegetarians and vegans may eat some sides like the house salad or green beans and even exclude chicken from some meals.
