Chick-fil-A Keto Menu Options and Ordering Guide

Chick-fil-A Keto Menu Options and Ordering Guide
One of the restaurants ketogenic dieters miss the most is Chick-fil-A. There’s something so crave-worthy about fast food chicken joints. But if you’re following a ketogenic diet, a chicken sandwich is not typically on the keto menu.

 Samuel Truett Cathy, an American businessman and author, founded Chick-fil-A in 1967. Since then, it’s grown to over 2,300 restaurants across 47 states [1]

The fast-food chain is known for its waffle fries and fried chicken sandwiches, which aren't keto-friendly. But that doesn't mean you can't make a trip occasionally. That's because the Chick-fil-A menu offers keto-friendly meals for diners who prefer to eat low-carb.

How to Find Chick-fil-A Keto Options on the Menu

If you read this at home, forget to bookmark it, and find yourself at a Chick-fil-A with nothing but your smartphone, you can still survive. You can find a complete list of meals, ingredients, and nutrition facts on the company's website.

When you’re looking for macros and ingredients of individual products, select the product. 

Click “See Nutrition” for all the nutrition information.

You can add all of the items that make up your meal to MyFitnessPal, Carb Counter, or any other macronutrient and nutrition app to find out the grand totals. 

Sometimes, other app users have already logged and saved the most common options (like a bunless burger) so you can just select it!

If you don't have an app handy or don't want to deal with entering info, stick to the following keto-friendly menu options.
