I did not make things as simple as believed by ordering all three, after all. By visiting the nutrition guide at KFC’s website, I discovered that by caloric comparison the three choices vary greatly. A piece of Original Chicken Breast has 370 calories, Extra Crispy a whopping 490, while the Grilled chicken breast has 180 calories. The kids and I did a taste test and thankfully, the Extra Crispy came in last. Opinions soon divided as the children went “old school” and preferred the Original, while my preference was the Grilled. A ten piece meal with three sides runs $17.99. Speaking of sides, my favorite at KFC is the Mashed Potatoes and Gravy. I think its really yummy and in my book competes with the chicken itself. Never one to let a tiny, little calorie get in the way of flavor- I almost decided ignorance is bliss and did not want to know how many calories it had. Only for the greater good did I look it up and there were a few surprises… Between Mashed Potatoes and Gravy, Macaroni and Cheese or Potato Wedges, which do you think had the most calories? If you chose the Potato Wedges you were right! An individual serving of the wedges has 260 calories, the Mac and Cheese has 180, while the Mashed Potatoes and Gravy had the least at 130. This gives new meaning to “one piece or two piece”, and now the subject matter is not about chicken- I’m talking about bathing suits!
