McDonald's is known worldwide for its amazing menu. It's got everything from burgers and fries to McFlurries and apple pies, and it always hits the spot. But, you shouldn't order everything on the menu the next time you're in the mood for some Mickey D's. Though the chain isn't considered a health-conscious establishment, there's one menu item that you NEED to avoid for the sake of your waistline...
It's no secret that McDonald's is home to some pretty unhealthy foods, but its Buttermilk Crispy Chicken Sandwich is one of their unhealthiest options. Known for its juicy and crispy chicken patty, the sandwich combines Mickey D's famous chicken with lettuce, tomato and mayo. The toppings may not be alarming, but the sandwich's nutritional information definitely is.
When it comes to fast food, "crispy" always means that it's breaded in fat and sugar. And it looks like McDonald's crispy chicken is no different. The Buttermilk Crispy Chicken Sandwich weighs in at 570 calories, 23g of fat, 1,050mg of sodium, and 64g of carbs. Yikes!
If those numbers aren't scary to you, Eat This, Not That! helped to put them into terms that will never make you want order the sandwich again. They said that one Buttermilk Crispy Chicken Sandwich from McDonald's has more fat that THREE slices of Domino's pizza and has many carbs as FIVE pieces of Wonder Bread... WOW!
