You could eat 10 nuggets from Wendy's and still eat fewer calories and fat grams than five super-sized chicken strips from McDonald's. Wendy's 10-piece (without sauce) contains a reasonable 440 calories, but is fairly high in fat (29 grams), due to the crispy, fried outside. McDonald's chicken strips are larger. When you eat just five, you're taking in 630 calories, 51% of your daily value of fat (33 grams), and 65% of your daily allotment of sodium.
You could eat 10 McNuggets for still fewer calories than the Chicken Selects (420 calories and 24 grams of fat). Whichever you choose, limit calories by using less dipping sauce. At McDonald's, most sauces (besides the 200-calorie-per-pack Creamy Ranch) contain between 50 and 70 calories each. All of Wendy's sauces vary between 28 and 35 calories per pack.
