Wendy\'s Crispy Chicken BLT

When it comes to value or dollar menu options, this might be the worst chicken sandwich of them all.

The Wendy's Crispy Chicken BLT contains 420 calories and 23 grams of fat.

While a breaded chicken cutlet on a bun with some lettuce and tomato ain't too bad, the additions of bacon, mayonnaise and a slice of American cheese push this sandwich into the danger zone.

High fat foods take a long time to digest, making them a terrible pick for a pre-workout, pre-practice, or pre-game snack.

The standard Wendy's Crispy Chicken Sandwich, which doesn't contain those additions, has 7 fewer grams of fat and 350 fewer milligrams of sodium.
