3-Piece Chicken Selects: 380 cal
Chicken Selects, the skinnier brother of Chicken McNuggets, clock in at just under 400 calories...for three small pieces of breaded chicken. (If you want to dip that in a packet of ranch, add another 120 calories.) Given that an entire chicken breast typically contains about 140 calories, where do the other 240 come from? The breading and the hydrogenated soybean oil it's cooked in, most likely. Also in there: Modified food starch, cellulose gum, sodium acid pyrophosphate, and rib meat.
Swap it for: Real rib meat: pork spareribs and asparagus for 421 calories.
