As many as you have probably heard, Chick-fil-a now offers Grilled Chicken Nuggets in their Kid's meals; however, they will work with adults. So today, I decided to venture out to Chick-fil-a for lunch, since I had not eaten out since January 2, 2012, and try this new healthy option.
I was limited on time, since I had to make a quick trip to Wal-mart to pick up a few items before I returned to the office. So I decided to go in, since I wasn't sure if this item was actually available at the location closest to my work. As I approached the cashier, I asked her about the nuggets, and she appeared unfamiliar with the menu item. (Side note: I have to assume, not many people have ordered this healthier option.) She did ask the cashier next to her, who gladly assisted her in ringing up my order.
When I returned to the office, I immediately wanted to track my 8-count grilled chicken nuggets, but the only place the nutritional value could be found was combined with a kid's meal. So, I decided I had to calculate to the best of my ability the points plus values.
I selected the low fat milk, 4-count grilled chicken nuggets, and small fruit cup, so I could retrieve the nutritional value. Then, I deducted out the nutritional value of a small fruit cup found on their site from the meal totals. Next, I had to do some research on the web to find the nutritional value in their low fat milk. Once I did, I deducted that from my meal totals. The remaining total was for a 4-count grilled chicken nuggets, so I multipled the fat, fiber, carbs and protein by 2, so I could find out how many points plus was in my 8-count.
The points plus value in an 8-count grilled chicken nuggets from Chick-fil-a is........Drum roll, please....3!!!!!!
Well don't forget the 2 PP for my 1/2 serving of Polynesian Sauce!
