Calories in Wendy's
Ultimate Chicken Sandwich

Written by Sky Taylor, Diet Bites

Calories

For about 400 calories, the customer gets a nice-size chicken sandwich containing a bonus amount of protein - over 30 grams. Protein is important to dieters, not only to ensure healthy muscles. Protein is king for helping curb hunger for long periods of time.

For example, if you are dieting and consume a tomato and cheese sandwich - you're likely to feel hungry two to three hours after eating. A chicken sandwich can stave hunger until the next meal time arrives.

Fat Distribution in Wendys Ultimate Chicken Grill Sandwich

Keep in mind that this fast food sandwich is grilled, not fried. Therefore, this cooking method will greatly impact its fat distribution content, and of course, keep the calories much lower than if the chicken had been fried in oil.

The total fat content is a tab over 11 grams. Saturated fat content is low at a little over 2 grams. The polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats are of the healthier variety and comprise the remaining lipid content.

In Summary - Healthy or Unhealthy Choice?

This sandwich makes a good choice for dieters at meal time based on the caloric value and the distribution of fats. However, it contains almost 1,000 milligrams of salt - making it....not the best choice, particularly for individuals who have been advised by their doctor to ditch their salt shaker.
