When we found out that Wendys has launched three new sandwiches we were stoked. It’s winter, it’s freezing, things are (still) hellish—let chicken be thy salve.
What kind of hot chicken delights are in store? Heres the lineup: the Hot Honey Chicken Biscuit, the Hot Honey Chicken Sandwich, and the Classic Big Bacon Cheddar Chicken.
But before you sink your teeth into Wendy’s latest menu additions, you want to know how they stack up nutritionally. That’s why we reached out to Kim Yawitz, R.D., a registered dietitian and gym owner in St. Louis, MO.
A little spicy, a little sweet, and all packed with flavor, we simply can’t resist giving each sandwich a try at least once. Understanding that the occasional chicken sandwich won’t hurt, Yawitz broke down the nutritional value of each sandwich, how the crispy versions differ from grilled, just how much protein you can get out of each, and how to fit one of these sandwiches into a fairly healthy diet.
