The Best Low Calorie Chick Fil A Orders
When it comes to ordering low calorie at a fast food restaurant like Chick Fil A, you might be imagining super tiny portions or salads with no dressing.
But, I'm here to tell you there's definitely a better way to order low calorie at Chick-Fil-A!
This extensive list has all the regular menu and breakfast menu options at Chick Fil A under 400 calories. I also included the sides, desserts, drinks, and sauces you can add on without exceeding that calorie limit too.
Honestly, you'll be surprised by how much you can actually eat at Chick Fil A while still keeping it healthy!
Tips for Ordering Low Calorie at Chick Fil A
First and foremost, when it comes to ordering low calorie at Chick Fil A, you'll want to avoid the regular nuggets, breaded chicken, and chick-n-strips. All of these have added calories from being fried and breaded. Oh, and just so you know, all of the nutritional information has been verified using the Chick Fil A nutritional calculator.
As you'll see in this list it's much better to opt for grilled filets (spicy or non-spicy) or grilled nuggets instead. They're significantly lower in calories than the fried options and are packed with lean protein.
Also, dressings and sauces can contribute a lot to the total calorie count of an order. So, just by swapping out the regular dressing or sauces with the ones I mention in this list can make a huge difference.
With all that said, let's dive into this guide and go over all of the low calorie options on the Chick-Fil-A menu!

Low Calorie Chick Fil A Breakfast Menu Items
1. Bacon Egg & Cheese Muffin
If you like to start your morning with crispy bacon, order the Chick Fil A bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich. It comes out to just 310 calories for the whole thing and you get a fluffy folded egg, American cheese, and smoked applewood bacon sandwiched in a toasty English muffin.
Of course, you can make it even lower in calories by asking for no bacon and getting just the egg and cheese.
All that, plus a plain coffee for 0 calories, and you've got yourself a pretty satisfying low calorie breakfast sandwich meal.
2. Egg White Grill
For a protein-packed breakfast option - that's still low in calories - I highly recommend Chick-Fil-A's egg white grill.
It comes with grilled chicken, folded egg whites, and American cheese for a total of 290 calories and 26 grams of protein!
3. Hash Brown Scramble Bowl (No Hash Browns)
It might seem counterintuitive to order a hash brown scramble without the hash browns. But, hear me out. Even without the fried potatoes, you're left with a hearty breakfast of fluffy scrambled eggs topped with chicken or sausage, montery jack and cheddar cheeses, and Jalapeno salsa.
Order your no-hash browns hash brown scramble bowl with grilled filet for 260 calories, spicy chicken for 310 calories, or either nugget, sausage, or spicy chick-n-strips for 320 calories.
4. Chick n Minis
Although these chicken sliders are small, they're surprisingly filling and an excellent option at Chick Fil A if you're really craving their fried chicken sandwich in the morning.
They're made with Chick Fil A nuggets sandwiched in mini yeast rolls brushed with honey butter, and come out to 360 calories for a 4-pack.
If you want to save calories, ask for the grilled nuggets instead of crispy chicken, and you'll save half the calories!
5. Greek Yogurt Parfait
If you're craving something sweet for breakfast, the Greek yogurt parfait is a must-try option on the Chick Fil A menu. The creamy Greek yogurt is flavored with organic vanilla beans and comes with fresh berries.
You can order it with cookie crumbs for 240 calories or with harvest nut granola for 270 calories. Of course, for even less calories just order the yogurt with berries and no toppings.
By the way, this yogurt parfait, along with a couple of the other Chick-Fil-A breakfast options we went over, made it onto my list of the healthiest fast food breakfast options out there. The list has over 20 incredible options from a variety of chains. It's well worth a look if you eat a lot of fast food for breakfast and you're trying to keep things as healthy - and low calorie - as possible.

The grilled market salad is packed with fresh fruit, greens, blue cheese crumbles, and grilled chicken breast, making it a healthy and balanced lunch option that'll keep you full until dinner.

Or, order it with no sauce at all for 370 calories.
8. Grilled Chicken Cool Wrap
Without the calorie-heavy avocado lime ranch dressing, Chick Fil A's cool wrap is just 350 calories.

9. Grilled Chicken Nuggets
Choosing the grilled chicken nuggets over the fried chicken nuggets makes a huge difference in calories.
An entire 12-pack of grilled nuggets comes out to just 200 calories compared to 380 calories for the regular nuggets.
Since they're so low in calories, you can pair the grilled nuggets with literally any Chick Fil A sauce (not just the low calorie ones) and still be under 350 calories. So it's a pretty fantastic deal if you love their dips!
And if you want an even lower calorie dip option for these grilled chicken bites, you have to give my sugar free BBQ sauce a try.
10. Cobb Salad (with Grilled Filet)
Chick Fil A's cobb salad comes with a calorie-heavy avocado lime ranch dressing that packs a hefty 310 calories per serving and crispy bell peppers at 80 calories. So, if you take those out of the equation and use a different dressing, you can get their cobb salad with a grilled filet for just 310 calories or with no chicken for 210 calories.

When the chilly weather hits, the chicken noodle soup at Chick Fil A is a pretty solid low calorie choice. A whole bowl of the soup has just 280 calories, including the saltine crackers they come with.
If you want it alongside some salad, order a cup (not a bowl) of chicken noodle soup with no crackers, plus a grilled market salad with light Italian dressing and no chicken. The total calorie count for this super filling meal is just 355 calories!
