If you’ve been panicked to find a Keto-friendly option in a pinch, there are a few low carb options at Chick-fil-A that should keep you satisfied.

Overview

For the most part, you’ll want to avoid the bread on the sandwiches or wraps (obviously) and the amazing sweet tea. Also, the delicious sauces. Fortunately, there are some really great basic meals that should easily fit your dietary goals, as well as some more indulgent choices. You may be surprised! Be careful not to be tempted by the chicken strips either… they come in at a whopping 28 grams of carbs!

Unfortunately you’ll have to avoid all of the entree sized salads as they’re all almost 30 grams of carbs!

While the original Chick-fil-A breaded patty is a bit higher in carbs (10), it isn’t completely out of question if you eat gluten. The original chicken nuggets, too. Beware of the spicy version — I’ve seen carb ranges of 16-20 grams, so I would count that out (boo!).

The Chick-fil-A Sauce really isn’t that Keto friendly, but it’s a major guilty pleasure of mine. Sometimes I partake. Sometimes I don’t.
