Zaxbys?

So my son and I have been doing low carb for 2 months with great success (15 lbs down for me and 12 down for him). He came and told me that he researched that Zaxbys chicken fingers were 5 carbs for 5 fingers. I looked on Zaxbys website and confirmed it. Then I researched forums thinking people would be talking about this and they are not. Sounds too good to be true but he ate them and still lost. What gives? Is this legit? Dont get me wrong, it's not something I would eat all the time but for a once in a while treat, sounds great.

I guess it depends on what they are coating them with. The information I looked up indicates that 5 chicken fingers are 19 carbs and 1 gram fiber, for 18 net carbs:

5 fingers = 13 carbs
Sauce = 6 carbs
Total = 19 carbs

Hardees chicken tenders may be slightly lower in carbs, but I knew 5 for 5 was not correct. I love Zaxby's...and had scoured their website for nutritional info when I started minths ago. The wings, naked with no sauce is all I eat there.

Yeah I read it wrong or something. Thanks for the info. Guess we read that wrong. I was looking at just the sauce apparently. Haha! I knew better. Glad I didn't go through with eating it.

I really wish places like Zaxby's would offer "grilled" or baked tenders. It can't be THAT hard.

My DD, who is gluten free, orders a piece of grilled chicken at Zaxbys all of the time. They will even cut it up into chunks if you want. I usually get a grilled chicken salad with no toast, no French fried onions, and no tomatoes.
