How many calories in a pre-packed chicken sandwich? The answer is not straightforward, since there are over 200 different chicken sandwiches, wraps and sub rolls on the market. The calorie content varies according to:
- the product type
- the portion size
- the other ingredients
- the brand.
Some chicken-based products are high in calories – we’re talking in the 500’s, 600’s and even 700’s. These include club sandwiches, with chicken, triple sandwiches with chicken and many chicken & bacon combinations.
On the flip side, there is a good range of chicken-based sandwiches and wraps with fewer than 300 calories, with representation from all of the major brands.
The average number of calories in a chicken-based sandwich or wrap is 415kcal per pack or 205kcal per 100g. For the sake of comparison, this is slightly less than your average vegetarian sandwich, which contains 429kcal per pack or 225kcal per 100g.
