Many people consider opting for chicken over other meats to be the “healthy” choice. In some cases, however, sandwiches use chicken to give it the guise of a leaner meal. Depending on the way it’s prepared and the other ingredients in the sandwich, it may be hiding high levels of fat.

Using nutrition data from ESHA Research, HealthGrove chose 20 chicken sandwiches with some of the highest amounts of grams of fat per serving. HealthGrove made sure to include sandwiches from varied sources. In the cases of identical sandwiches with slightly different flavors (such as chipotle chicken cheesesteak and buffalo chicken cheesesteak), HealthGrove chose the sandwich with the higher fat content.

In the cases of identical sandwiches of different sizes (such as giant or regular), HealthGrove chose the sandwich that someone would be more likely to eat in one sitting (regular) to go on the list. In the case of a tie, they ranked the sandwich with the most sodium higher.
