Fast food is seductive; it comes in large quantities, cheap prices and delicious aromas and tastes. However, that bang for your buck can explode your diet and get you off track. Sometimes fast food can’t be avoided, but the massive amounts of calories that frequently come with it can be. Check out our Popeyes menu under 500 calories.
With Popeyes, you have a couple of options.
Blackened Tenders: These blackened chicken tenders are batter-free and non-breaded, but still bursting with that famous Popeyes flavor. At only 170 calories for three tenders, this is a serious waistline-saver.
Loaded Chicken Wrap: A handcrafted tender, all wrapped up with red beans and rice in a warm cheddar tortilla. This wrap is perfect if you're looking to switch things up a little from Popeyes' normal menu. 310 calories never looked so good!

Green Beans: Green beans are the perfect side. They go with almost anything (but especially chicken) and contain only 40 calories for a small side!
>> Recipe: Skinny Country Green Beans
Beverage: We will always encourage you to drink water throughout the day, but if you need a little pick-me-up, diet sodas also contain zero calories, as do unsweetened iced teas!
Eating out doesn't have to ruin your diet. All it takes is a little planning! Next time your crazy schedule and cravings take you to Popeyes, remember the simple menu above, or click here for the nutrition info of their entire menu.
