If you look at the ingredients in McDonald's grilled chicken, you'll see a lot of stuff that you likely don't stock in your home pantry. Maltodextrin coats the chicken to achieve even distribution of seasoning. Sodium phosphates are used to keep the chicken's texture from deteriorating during transport. Artificial flavors are present in the liquid margarine that the chicken is cooked in. Sounds just like mom's home cooking, right?
The good news is that this is all about to change. McDonald's has just announced an improved grilled chicken recipe; one that has ingredients you'll actually recognize.

For years, food companies have been making vegetable products that look like meat. But back in 2005, Burger King flipped the script by introducing chicken fries, which were quite possibly the first meat product made to look like a vegetable. Chicken fries were crispy pieces of fried chicken, with a french fry shape that made them perfect for dipping. After a 7 year run, Burger King discontinued Chicken Fries in 2012.
This did not sit well with fans of chicken fries. They took to the internet threatening to boycott Burger King and even signing presidential petitions asking Obama to bring about the return of Chicken Fries. It took a few years, but Burger King finally listened, and chicken fries are back!
So what's healthier; eating your chicken in nugget or fry shape? Or does it matter at all? Let's look at the nutrition facts and find out!
