#2 KFC Chicken Pot Pie

One of the worst items on the menu is the KFC chicken pot pie. It includes “crisp bites of the world’s greatest chicken,” diced potato, peas, carrots, and a flavorful sauce. Although it started off as a regional dish with a limited release, a nostalgic marketing campaign helped it become a national staple in 2012. But it’s also very unhealthy. It has a whopping 1970 milligrams of sodium, 45 grams of fat, and 790 calories.

The optimal salt intake is less than 1,500 milligrams, according to the American Heart Association, which advises against exceeding the daily limit of 2,300 mg. The Pot Pie contains a startlingly high 25 grams of saturated fat, which is comparable to the amount of saturated fat in 17 KFC drumsticks, 25 Fried Wings with honey barbecue sauce, 5 large orders of popcorn nuggets, or nearly four entire Famous Bowls in just one pie.

  1. I NEVER eat fast food. I eat only organic fresh and raw when possible. My BMI hovers around 16-17. I’m
    6′ and weigh ~132pds and exercise daily in my work in the construction field. I’m 76 and could pass for 56.
    The general population eating the standard diet will never be healthy and have pot bellies and huge butts.
    The analogy would be like always adding water to the gas in the car and complaining to the mechanic about poor performance. We also have the influence of BigPharma on the protocols doctor’s must follow, for instance, a patient with diabetes will be put on insulin for life ($ to Pharma) with no consultation about food choices or exercise.

  2. Kentucky fried chicken has to much sodium in the batter , they stop selling the grill chicken with could be better for your health, the sides are very dry no spice

  3. And I LOVE it!! I eat it often. I don’t care about a lot of meat, EVER, so I enjoy the sauce with the veggies and great tasting crispy crust. This won’t stop me from ordering it. In fact, now you’ve got me craving it. LOL We all gotta die sometime. I don’t drink, smoke, or do drugs, so I guess I’ll just eat myself to death eating the wrong things. I LOVE the POT PIE!!
