Health Tip – When ordering a KFC Tender Box or Popcorn Nuggets Combo, calories vary depending on what sides and drink you choose. A new addition to the menu, KFC fries add 320 calories and 1,100mg of sodium to this meal. Customers can select different sides like coleslaw or green beans for healthier options. They can also ask for a beverage with less sugar.

Health Tip – When ordering wings off the menu, customers can opt for different sauces. By picking wings without sauce, they can easily cut down on how many calories are in KFC wings. This also reduces sodium and, in some cases, grams of fat. Ordering dipping sauce on the side can also help with portion control.

Health Tip – 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. Opting for family sides increases calories, fats, and sodium levels significantly. Adding a beverage to meals may increase caloric intake greatly, as well. Substituting regular soda pop with diet drops calorie levels next to zero, while sodium levels remain unchanging, as soda pop drinks remain heavily concentrated in calories and sugar.

Health Tip – KFC’s new Nashville Hot Chicken includes a variety of pieces to choose from. For the lowest calorie and fat content, customers can select grilled chicken options. The Nashville Hot Kentucky grilled chicken breast has 260 calories, 38 grams of protein, and 12 grams of fat. Alternatively, the extra crispy version has a much higher 770 calories with 60 grams of fat and less protein.

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. Additional meal options include go cups, which come with various chicken selections and potato wedges. Each choice contains around 500 calories. Customers may also select between the KFC Famous Bowl and chicken pot pies, both of which supply more than 700 calories, over 30g of fat, and 2,000 mg of sodium. Choosing the snack-size version of the bowl dramatically decreases each nutritional value.

Health Tip – Calories in KFC pot pies and bowls range between 720 and 740 for the regular size menu items. Try the snack size famous bowl that has 270 calories. With the same ingredients, this quick bite menu item has the same ingredients and flavor. For a meal that is just as filling yet healthier, add a piece of grilled chicken or salad with fat-free dressing.

Health Tip – 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. 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.

Health Tip – Many chicken dishes include the use of 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. Popcorn chicken nuggets predominantly pair with dipping sauces. Large orders of nuggets contain 1,800 mg of sodium. Smaller popcorn chicken orders marketed as child sizes contain half the nutritional values of large orders.

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.

A hungry individual seeking traditional southern cooking from the fast food chain often consumes a couple pieces of chicken, one side, and a drink. Total calorie and fat counts vary significantly for standard meals, as chicken comes in the form of breasts, drumsticks, thighs, and wings. For instance, 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. The same meal with water and grilled chicken instead of crispy drops overall nutrition counts to just over 300 calories, with 12 fat grams in tow. However, sodium levels remain fairly high at around 1,300 mg.
