You can find a healthy meal almost anywhere, if you do a little research, even in fast food restaurants. One very difficult fast food place was KFC. (You may know KFC as "Kentucky Fried Chicken," but they officially changed their name years ago to escape the unseemly F word in their name.) Finally, a couple of years ago, they added grilled chicken to their menu and finally, they had some resonably tasty, reasonably choices.
But with one hand the Colonel giveth, with the other he taketh away. On Monday, look for their new "Double Down," reported in a NY Times blog:
"The sandwich contains no bread. Instead, two deep-fried boneless white-meat chicken filets act in bread's place. They contain a sandwich of bacon and melted cheese between them, with a splat of a mayonnaise product called Colonel's Sauce to moisten the whole."
No, it's real. A sandwich between two pieces of fried chicken instead of bread. Surely Homer Simpson will be at KFC on Monday. Hey, I might be in line behind him, I'm no angel.
But probably not. This one is really over the top. In case you're wondering, it's 540 calories, the same as a Big Mac. These are nowhere near as bad as things can be. Burger King's Double Whopper is 920.
Fries with that?
