From Burger King:
"Crispy premium white meat chicken topped with thick-cut bacon, tomato, shredded lettuce, mayo, and served on a sesame seed bun. A great new twist added to an all-time favorite."
Burger King's Chicken Club is nothing more than its fried chicken sandwich. It is a slab of fried chicken with some shredded lettuce and a big glob of mayonnaise. Add a few strips of bacon and a couple of slices of tomatoes.
To be fair however, we will note that the bacon was quite good. Better than some bacon's tossed onto a burger. It does have a wonderful flavor and is thicker than what you usually find on sandwiches like this.
Never Mind the Cheese...
The chicken is a patty shaped and packed with additives. But the oblong shaped sesame seed sub-roll is a nice change from the same old hamburger roll on 99 percent of other chicken sandwiches.
Without cheese, the Burger King Chicken Club packs the following into your system.
- 700 calories
- 44 grams of fat (nine of them saturated)
- 1,300 milligrams of sodium
And those numbers do not include the trans fat from the shortening in the deep fryer.
What to do?
Instead, try a McDonald's Chicken McGrill. Have them leave the mayonnaise off the sandwich. By doing so, it will contain 340 calories, seven grams of fat, and 890 mg of sodium. If you love mayonnaise, add a packet of light mayonnaise and the fat rises to just 11 grams.
Burger King's own BK Broiler without the mayonnaise will set you back just 9 grams.
