Chick-fil-A officially jumped on the keto bandwagon.
According to a Chick-fil-A press release, the fast food chicken joint now offers tons of keto-friendly meal options. Sure, some keto-tweaking is involved (like removing the bun from sandwiches or opting for a hash brown-free scramble bowl), but Chick-fil-A says their keto-approved foods all have “10 or fewer net grams of carbohydrates” and are filled with protein power” to satisfy your keto cravings for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Also important: Chick-fil-A has tons of keto-friendly sauces too, according to the press release. Their garlic and herb ranch sauce, zesty buffalo sauce, creamy salsa dressing, light Italian dressing, and avocado lime ranch dressing all fit the keto bill.
