Can I eat KFC without the breadcrumbs?

Do you think I could buy a KFC and remove the crispy skin and just eat the chicken? Logically I don't see why not but what do you think?

Yes, order the grilled.

I wouldn't order the fried. They inject all of the chicken with a sugary brine, but the grilled is the better out of not good choices at KFC.

I'm in the UK - I've looked and we can get a grilled BBQ ranch salad but that's the only grilled chicken there is and it's 16 carbs. No thanks! It's in their "healthy" range so that's as good as our grilled chicken is going to get. Removing the coating from their regular chicken surely must be better?

Yeah, I'd switch to a different place.

But if you're set on eating at KFC, and there's no grilled chicken in the UK (here, they have all the same pieces offered grilled), yes, I'd remove the breading and eat the chicken.

It's not my only choice, or even my first choice, just thought it could be a fast food outlet that could be carb friendly, I never thought it was injected with sugar! I'll avoid it I think.

For fast food, burgers are the easiest for me. Bunless burgers (with no sweet sauce) are a great choice, and easily accessible.

I used to get their boneless grilled chicken breasts - their site said 0 carbs.
Those saved me more than once when I was doing LC.

She's saying in the UK, they don't have the same grilled chicken we do.

Yes, you can do that. That's what I did until they came out with the grilled chicken.

I know, I'd never considered for a moment it was injected with sugar! Gee that white stuff is everywhere. I'm wary of hamburgers because they sometimes have fillers but yes, that's what I did last week, had a burger and threw away the bun.

The KFC website says they marinate the chicken before breading it. But I found a forum where employees of KFC give the real scoop. One of them said they USED to marinate it in the restaurant prior to cooking, now it comes "pre-marinated". I looked on the KFC website for the marinade ingredients. It says...

Salt, Sodium Phosphate and Monosodium Glutamate.

The coating DOES contain sugar.

I've just looked at the KFC website and their nutritional guide, amazingly there's nutrition for original recipe breast with no skin or breading! And the carb count? ZERO!

I ate it in induction & still lost...

I must admit I ate KFC for lunch 1-2 times per week during the first few weeks after going low carb. I still eat it occasionally when I don't bring food from home. It's directly across the street from my job and its either that or Mickey D's, I see KFC as the lesser of two evils. I order the 2 piece original or extra crispy, no biscuit & no drink. Ate the breading & it didn't affect me negatively but everyone is different

Yes we are, because I'll go to McDonald's and find a dozen ways to eat on plan with no problem. A bunless burger is easy and satisfying for me, and I wouldn't choose KFC (or Church's or any other fast food fried chicken) over a burger place when I'm eatng on plan.

Too much temptation at the Golden Arches

There's too much temptation at McDonalds for me, i couldn't resist eating the bun!!! My mouth is watering right now just thinking about a big juicy Angus burger with bacon & cheese & red onions mmmm plus a large hot coffe wtih 5 sugars & 10 creamers AND an apple pie (ok 2 apple pies) to top it off (hold the fries & the soda) LOL. Fried chicken was never a favorite of mine it always made me feel slightly sick after eating it (still does actually) so make an effort to pack my lunch every day plus I carry an Atkins shake (and a treat) in my purse at all times...
