Calories In A McChicken

There are 360 calories in a McChicken from McDonalds. So where do all of the calories in a McChicken come from? Lets find out....

For starters, the bun has 150 calories thats almost half of the entire burger calorie wise. The chicken itself contains 150 calories and 470 mg of sodium. The McChicken patty alone has 20% of the sodium you need in an entire day. The lettuce adds a meager 10 calories, but the mayo tacts on a whopping 50 calories, bringing the final total to 360.

Sure enough this isnt the worst thing you could order off McDonalds fatty menu, but what seems like a harmless burger actually isnt when the entire thing contains half the sodium required in a day.

How many calories in a McChicken will depend on how you decide to dress up this burger. You can opt out of the mayonnaise dressing and save 50 calories and 5 grams of fat. You can do one better and also order this McDonalds chicken sandwich without the bun. This will bring the calorie count down to 160.

However you order a McChicken try to avoid pairing this up with fries and a coke. Doing this can add hundreds of calories and no nutritional value. Instead, go for a refreshing cold ice water and a parfait. Your waistline will thank you later.
