Fast Food: Popeye's Naked Chicken Strips

Yep, I had fast food last night. I went to Popeye's. I had scoured all the websites of the fast food joints within 5 mins of my house and boy did I strike it rich. Popeye's has these chicken strips that don't have any batter or skin. They are marinated and spicy. YUM!

3 strips of which I could only eat 2 has 170 calories. 29 grams of protein. 5 grams of fat. Word of warning though: do NOT get the meal. If you do, you are going to get one of their yummy yummy bisquits. I knew I wouldn't be able to resist, but maybe you are stronger than me! ;) (BTW - That little tiny bisquit has 240 calories!)

I had the green beans as a side - only 40 calories. But they also have collard greens - going to have those next time (50 calories). Cost me less than 5 bucks. Sorry, no pic of the chicken. Guess they figure since it is naked and all that it isn't appropriate. You'll have to deal with a pic of the beans.

I would rather have my chicken naked. I have never been a fan of the skin or the breading or any of that stuff. I, too, like Popeyes chicken, and their greens are delicious.

Mmmm.. Love Popeyes! That's good to know about the naked chicken. I love their Cajun Mashed Potatoes -- in fact I think I might splurge and have some once I get to the mashed potato stage :)

Thanks for posting these great finds. I always wonder what banded folk do at fast food restaurants.
