Because Chick-Fil-A is pretty limited on keto-friendly options, it can be a bit difficult to order there. It is certainly possible, but there are a couple of things to keep in mind and a few specific no-nos when it comes to ordering food.
So here are some rules to follow when ordering keto-friendly food at Chick-Fil-A:
1. Avoid All Things Flour
Anything made with flour is a huge no-no. This means no buns, no sandwich bread, and no biscuits. They are all loaded with carbs!
When ordering, make sure that bread doesn't come with your meal, and if it does, ask them to remove it.
2. No Desserts
There are, as of yet, no keto-friendly dessert options at Chick-Fil-A. They are all too sugary and full of carbs, making them completely off the keto diet plan.
3. Skip The Breaded Section
You will also need to skip any breaded items on the menu as these are high in carbs as well. This includes items like the breaded chicken strips. Instead, try ordering the grilled chicken nuggets!
Here are a few answers to the most frequently asked questions about ordering keto food at Chick Fil A!
Does Chick-Fil-A have any keto-friendly options?
They certainly do! Their options might be slightly limited, but Chick-Fil-A still has some pretty tasty options.
The only thing that you will need to keep in mind is that most keto options will need to be customized. For example, the hash brown bowl will need to be ordered without hash browns to make it keto-friendly.
With most keto options, you'll have to ask to have certain ingredients taken out of your order to keep it within your diet plan.
Can I order Chick-Fil-A sauces on a ketogenic diet?
Yes, you can! Unlike their food options, Chick-Fil-A actually offers a pretty wide selection of keto-friendly sauces and dressings. These are perfect for dressing up any keto meal. And, since many of their low-carb options happen to be chicken, these sauces give you something tasty to dip into!
How are the nuggets keto-friendly?
The reason why the grilled chicken nuggets are keto-friendly is that they are not breaded. They are basically naked chicken nuggets that have been grilled instead of fried.
If they were breaded, they would be too high in carbs. But, luckily for us, they are perfect for a keto diet.
Can I eat a full meal that is keto at Chick-Fil-A?
Yes, you definitely can eat a full meal at Chick-Fil-A! You will probably have to piece together a filling meal with an entree and some sides, but it will be delicious and satisfying.
Not all meals are completely keto. Just make sure to ask for non-keto food items to be removed from your meal.
