RD tip: Most people assume chicken breast is a healthier option than the thigh, but opting for the grilled chicken thigh at KFC instead of the grilled breast saves 60 calories and about 300mg of sodium since it’s smaller. Plus, ordering your chicken grilled instead of fried cuts out 130 calories and almost 500mg of sodium. Best Side: Green Beans. At just 25 calories and zero fat, this vegetable is by far the best for you. But the corn on the cob is a close second with 70 calories and 2 grams of protein.

Otherwise. I recommend you order two Kentucky Grilled Chicken Breasts, asmall side of green beans, and special request a creamy buffalo dipping sauce at the checkout window. That’s a delicious full meal with 6 net carbs and about 600 calories. 42 rows · Eating Healthy at Fast Food Restaurants: Kentucky Fried Chicken I have created this list. One of the best things to order at KFC is the Zinger Tower Burger.

You can recreate that at home too by taking a piece of this breaded chicken and putting it in a bun with some cheese, lettuce, some Restaurant Style Salsa and one of our Homemade Healthy Hash Browns. How to Eat Healthy at KFC Step 1. Prepare a meal plan for the day. If you normally eat 2,000 calories per day, decide how many calories you can Step 2. Review the nutritional guides available on the KFC website before you leave home or ask for a copy at the Step 3. Select your meal. You can order a box of chicken (you can specify if you want white meat or dark meat the legs and thighs are dark meat or a mix of the two). Those usually come in.

Toasted Wrap With Or Without Sauce. Other decent sides on the KFC menu include: Corn (no butter), green beans, KFC red beans with sausage and rice (no kidding! 24 grams of protein and just 160 calories and 2.5 grams of fat according to the nutrition information posted on their website).

I figured that skinless, boneless chicken breasts cooked in corn oil would be a healthy substitute for our more traditional spiedies, so I put the chicken spiedie on the menu really as a way to get my dad and everybody else to eat healthier.”

  • I’m from Louisville,Ky & I haven’t ate KFC in years their food just ain’t the same as it wuz when I wuz growing up it’s nasty as hell now I wouldn’t recommend it 4 anybody…����

  • More food wars please! I came across your food war vid… And hooked!! Thanks for the info. I have lost 6 kg post pregnancy weight. And your channel is such a help, I wish I found this channel sooner…

  • Thankfully, I noticed a few years back that I was getting sick every time I had KFC. It’s been years since I had any, and likely won’t again after this.
    Someone mentioned IKEA I think this would be a great idea as some of their options look pretty decent, but you never know! Thanks Brad.

  • The gravy from KFC comes in individual packets and all they do is add hot water to it the same like any gravy you could buy at the store it just has more fat in it just thought I’d let you know Facts!!!!!

  • Things that sound even more delicious at KFC after watching this video.
    Oh, except the old stuff. Stuff sitting too long is disgusting.

  • Tell this to KFC

    You: Guess what?

    KFC: what?

    You: Chicken butt


    You: Guess who?

    KFC: who?

    You: Chicken Juice!

    Next thing you know it…

  • Anyone remember when KFC had popcorn chicken from the early 2000s and how amazing it was. I know they brought it back but it’s garbage now

  • While I agree with the consensus here that Popeye’s is better than KFC, I don’t have an opinion on “the best.” I’ve never tasted Church’s or Bojangles since they aren’t really around me.

    I think I need to go on a beat fried chicken quest and find out.

  • Some of these were pretty cool and stuff I didn’t know after even working for the company at one point. But none of this was stuff I needed to know before I ate there again. This channel has really gone down hill recently.

  • I’d dare say that KFC’s competitors (Popeyes, Bojangles and Church’s) probably do most things better such as offer tastier, more interesting, varied sides and deserts which are clearly better in overall quality. KFC still uses instant mashed potatoes with okay tasting gravy, so I’d say they’re a bit out of date with something that I can accurately describe as having the consistency of potato paste. It was perfectly acceptable in the late 80’s, but this is now and not then. You have to up your game some! Popeyes’ mashed potatoes and gravy, on the other hand, are delicious and clearly made in house with maybe the exception of their much better tasting Cajun styled gravy. The only thing that I can say KFC makes the absolute best is their original recipe fried chicken, partly because no one else makes it, and that it’s indeed, truly a timeless classic.

    THAT IT WAS IN THE ’60’S!!

  • KFC in Canada is horrible. The chicken stays for hours under hot lamps and the skin is all soft, not crispy all all. And the taste ain’t what it used ro be in the 70s.

  • KFC was never good in the 19 years I’ve been alive. Fuck their secret recipe no one needs it. Also always get food poisoning from this shit

  • The colonel would actually visit individual restaurants and criticize the food with swearing and yelling. He once said a store’s gravy was so bad he wouldn’t even feed it to his dog. OUCH!

  • I have read that they are changing their chicken recipe and its will be 3D printing (I know it sounds weird)they are working with Russia and they say its suppose to be good. Sounds strange to me. Thought you might be interested in this.

  • Nice!! Thanks very much..Can you please do a ‘Food Wars’ on Ikea Food…I work over there, so it’s very hard to avoid, not to eat over there #LiveLeanTV

  • I worked at KFC. The majority of stuff you’re saying so far is not true. Really messed up part is that you’re mixing truth with lies

  • I’ll have two number nines, a number nine large, a number six with extra dip, a number seven, two number forty-fives, one with cheese, and a large soda.

  • Work at a British KFC…90 % of this is unavailable here and 30% of this is bull….gravey is made with water and a packet though the crackling does come from the cooked chicken. Ps never brought gravy to have on Xmas not sure why you think us Brits want KFC gravy on our turkey’s come Xmas. Also while looking at this I don’t think many American fast food places across America are particularly that good for you….plus damn those portions sizes our large is your regular.

  • Hi I am Vietnamese, I learn English from your youtube, I like so much, so can you speak slower, Sometime i cannot hear…. thanks you

  • Here’s the dialogue if you want to practice with a friend (or yourself in the mirror:p)

    Are you still serving breakfast?


    Do you have any veggie burgers?

    No, we only have chicken burgers.

    Chicken burgers?


    Okay, actually, can I just get a side of baked beans and I’ll also have the mashed potatoes and gravy. Actually, can I get that without the gravy?


    Can you do that?

    Yes. Okay, so a small baked bean and a small mashed, no gravy.

    Correct, yes, yes, and can I get that for here?


    Five eighty-six please.

    Do you take apple pay?


    You do?


    Oh, actually, you know what, I’m using my phone, so I’ll just pay cash.

    Thank you.

    Thank you.

  • That’s really awesome video as always,, can u plz video and talk fast like Americans so we can understand other people who talks fast, I hope understand what I mean.

  • If i eat kfc i know darn well I’m not there to worry about salt, fats,carbs, calories im there to eat a fast food chicken meal that tastes amazing.

  • Я вас не понимаю, зачем вам так надо разбираться в том, что вы едите, один фиг понятно, что фастфуд дерьмо, чего вы ожидаете? Если вам вкусно, то тогда пока она вас не убьёт за один укус ешьте

  • Hiii I’m Vishal India I used to do job in KFC and many foreigners people used to come there and I used to feel good when I used to talk with them and I liked your videos
    But I wish I could work in Foreign Restaurant like Australia, England etc I’m fond of talking to foreigners people and I love them so much

  • I am not a big KFC fan, but sometimes I eat there, and your videos seems to be a collection of dietary numbers, former employee stories, unfounded rumors and a lack of actual facts.

  • I’m safe. I’d never even want any of those things at KFC. What I eat there: Original chicken. Not the mashed potatoes and for sure not that gravy. The chicken and maybe a biscuit. By the way: I don’t for a minute believe that gravy is made from the scum at the bottom of the fryers. It’s still gross though.

  • Lol ���� None of this is trueee (The nutritional number are correct) I can’t speak for EVERY STORE but I’ve worked at KFC for 2 years and wow… never been so disappointed in a video before. Gravy is NOT made from chicken grease or whatever. It’s freshly made every morning along with all the food expect the pot pie batter.. which I made the night before for cooling

  • I don’t know what KFC some of you have eaten at or worked at, but THEY HAVE VERY STRICT GUIDLINES for TIME TAGGING and the things you are saying and showing is totally incorrect. And to the ones that say they keep left over chicken, doesn’t everyone know if there is any leftover CHICKEN thats HOW WE HAND MAKE OUR POTPIES. AS I HAVE SAID, VERY STRICT GUIDLINES on TEMPING. HMMM, I f you ask most CUSTOMERS there maybe a small time wait as OUR CHICKEN WE CAN NOT KEEP IN OUR WARMERS LONG ENOUGH forOUR NEXT DROP. OUR CHICKEN is COOKED every 22 minutes. SO MASHED, BE NICE and STOP BADGERING KFC when you are NOT CLEAR of the PROCEDURES and PRACTICES.

  • It’s been on the order of twenty-five years since KFC had anything on it’s menu that made me want to make a special trip to one of their stores. But then I can say the same thing about their two biggest competitors in the “fast chicken” market. Boring and, in some cases, just plain tasteless and bordering on nasty…..No “special sauce” made can undo nasty and/or otherwise tasteless chicken I don’t care whose name or face is on the box.

  • They don’t do the soaking of the BBQ sandwich anymore. Actually it’s better now I made chicken at kfc so i know that now they just pour the barbecue on as soon as it’s ordered and the chicken for the sandwich is changed every hour

  • Gravy made from the oil huh…wow ppl so stupid the gravy comes in a bag then is mixed with 212° water that’s all….if this video were true it’d be shut down

  • Sounds to me like we should just stay away from KFC altogether!
    Damn mashed! THANKS A LOT!!!!
    �� love that chicken from popeyes��
    And as far as fries go, I’d rather have KFC fries than McDonald’s human horse meat burgers! JS.

  • Yeaaaah I’m not sure how true this is in countries with proper food regulations. America’s food and animal welfare standards are pretty bad compared to Europe so I doubt anything here is true for where I live. Plus most of these things aren’t even on the menu here, other than the chicken, fries and gravy. The gravy is pretty good though. Very salty, but it’s not something I eat every day (probably like 2-4 times a year) so I’m not that bothered.

  • I once had to call the KFC company to let them know that the store I was getting my food from wasn’t putting enough Nashville sauce on my chicken. And that they wouldn’t give me the buttermilk ranch dip because I didn’t order tenders.

  • Fast food such as KFC isn’t meant 2 be eaten very often but in moderation like a special occasion. Of course KFC’s bad 4 you it’s got “Fried” in the damn title so we eat it here & there.We all know what’s in Hot dogs but that doesn’t stop us from eating them!!
    Stop picking on KFC.

  • I really appreciate your video. Im a shut in person. (People who doesnt leave house) and my anxiety keep rising. I even scared to make order everywhere when they keep asking. And i even scared to leave home sometimes.. yaa.. i know im hopeless… Thanks for the video. Its really help me to get courage even a little.

  • Taking the focus away from the US centric theme to these items in the Australian KFC market, they should bring back the Zinger Pie…that was good

  • I truely respect you as a very good teacher sir. Only learners like us have the true idea of how helpful your work is for. helpful has a very tiny meaning. you are a lot. Im specially thankful to you for making the “how to do things in english” and i hope to see more videos in this series. i will definitely recommend your channel to others. We love you!

  • The problem have my local kfc when comes to the wings they don’t have them already done to go they to make them for you but they don’t tell you that when go order then they say extra 20 to 30 mins wait

  • You forgot the honey. It’s not called honey. It’s called honey sauce because its not 100% honey. Why mess with something like honey?

  • Yea seriously that’s not how the quality is at KFC maybe you guys should get actual facts before believing some idiot on reddit saying they worked there and NO THAT IS NOT HOW THE GRAVY is made ive worked there for over 4 years and we have NEVER done that to make gravy you should really take this video down because it is so far beyond misleading it’s bad

  • This list left me in the mood to fight. I love everything on this list. I’ve never heard anyone say they didn’t like the nashville hot and most certainly not the famous bowl.

  • The two KFC’s in my area never EVER offer honey BBQ bone in wings. They say they are always out and only have buffalo wings. To hell with buffalo sauce I want the honey BBQ like back in the early 90s. I never go there any more nectar I know they won’t have my bone in honey BBQ wings

  • I used to love the chicken wings! But now they taste different for some reason…they even look different. Did they change something with these wings? Now they suck.

  • Their grilled chicken is typically good whenever I get it but the pieces are waaay small. Idk if that’s good because they’re using regular size non-hormone pumped chickens or bad because they purposely use small pieces so you are forced to buy more. And maybe they’re just smaller because of the lack of breading but I’m not sure. Pollo Tropical has the best grilled chicken with bones though, hands down. Chick fil a is good for boneless chicken pieces

  • The new chicken littles should be discontinued, indefinitely…. and avoid grilled chicken but go for the nasty pot pie?!? Were you dropped on your head????… and popcorn nuggets? I especially like the case of heart arrhythmia afterwards ������������Original recipe kfc chicken is ick! In my opinion ������

  • Here in Canada, we don’t have half of these items. Only thing I order from kfc is the “zinger sandwich” the sauce is damn well boss.

    Does America have the zinger sauce?

  • I had the Nashville hot chicken when it came out a few years ago and it was stoopid spicy! I think the cap fell off! Now you say it is NOT spicy. Hmm…….

  • My only problem with these types of videos is that this is just their opinion. Somebody could consider one of the lowest ranked items on this their favorite.

  • Brad I’m a girl and I workout a least 4-5 days/wk. I know guys drink protein shake to help recover and build muscle a but can girls drink protein shake?

  • I live in Kingston Ontario and only one store deliveries KFC. The store is one mile from me but doesn’t recognize my address so for over ten years I can not get KFC. The store will not answer the phone.

  • Wow, if the story of the founder of KFC doesn’t make you feel disgusted I don’t know what will… He created the chain, played the mascot, sold it and then watched it as it was dragged through the mud…fucking profit based capitalism at its worst.

  • Wish there were more ads. Question: why does this channel make videos saying to stay away from certain foods at KFC and then turn around and make another video saying how great it is?

  • I like the bowls with a little bit of everything but I always have to order some extra popcorn chicken because there’s never enough with the mashed potatoes.

    Sadly our only one left in town is currently shut down by the health dept because people these days are lazy and didn’t keep things clean. I saw the pictures so I’ll get my fresh fried chicken at Walmart for now!

  • It would be great to have a video about how franchise chains diversify their menu internationally. I’m in Botswana ���� and I’ve been eating KFC my whole life but I can only relate to about 20% of the stuff mentioned in this video

  • I have been to the Kentucky Fried Chicken in Corbin Kentucky. If you are driving through Kentucky on 75 South pull off at the Corbin exit and give them a visit.

  • $60 for the entire menu??? Fuck lol here in Aus two people ordering one of the boxed meals will run you about $35 all up and we don’t have Mac n cheese or the beans. America….

  • hi jp hi julia im a big fan of healthy junk food. you guys are soo funny and you make our day light up thank you for being great youtubers. oh and mabye you can make a giant plate of pasta thanks.

  • I love how giving JP one little sliver of hot chicken, the video escalates so quickly. I feel bad for him but I literally can’t help laughing my ass off

  • Been eating KFC for years ever since I was a kid, now the KFC here in fay,nc not bad,but the one in SC amazing above and beyond well stocked buffet just couldn’t get enough of that KFC in SC
