What to eat at KFC?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created April 14, 2010 at 6:40 AM

Once in a while I'm out with friends and they want to have some fast-food. Usually at that point I'm hungry as well so I usually think "why not, it's only once in every two weeks" or something similar. Do you have any particular suggestions what to eat at KFC?

Ps. I wouldn't like to see anybody telling me not to eat.. I know that already.

I haven't eaten at KFC in about a decade.

Today, I went there with my eyes open and had a Grilled Double Down. I asked for it with no sauce (have you read what's in that sauce?!) and they unfortunately didn't honor my request.

It was really yummy. But recognize what you're getting:

  • CAFO chicken, marinated in chemicals (including soybean oil and MSG!)
  • CAFO bacon
  • monterey jack and pepper jack cheese (or something else; depends on their budget)
  • Colonel's Sauce (Soybean Oil, Water, Distilled Vinegar, Egg Yolk, Sugar, Salt, Modified Corn Starch, Paprika, Xanthan Gum, Monosodium Glutamate, Spice, Chicken Broth, Garlic Powder, Propylene Glycol Alginate, Potassium Sorbate, Autolyzed Yeast Extract, Soy Sauce (Soybean, Wheat, Salt), Natural Flavor, Chicken Fat, Dehydrated Chicken and Hydrolyzed Corn Gluten.)

I suggest that you download and print the Ingedient's List and circle things that look paleo to you: http://www.kfc.com/nutrition/pdf/kfc_ingredients_apr10.pdf

Honestly the only things I'd suggest are:

Don't get anything boneless.

Personally, I wouldn't eat anything from KFC. Even their grilled chicken is loaded with additives that I try to avoid--MSG, Soy, and Wheat flour being the big offenders.

On the plus side, KFC posts the ingredient lists for what appears to be their entire menu. So you can always take a look through it and see if there is anything "edible" on the list.
