If you’ve passed through the DC area recently, then you know all about Nando’s. If you haven’t, don’t worry this International chicken chain is doing its best to push through the Midwest out to California as quickly as possible. And their Peri-Peri Chicken Breast Sandwich is why you want them to do it.


Nando’s features Portuguese-style chicken (though the chain originated in South Africa and is the talk of London town). That means the deliciousness comes from Peri-Peri sauce rather than added fat. And that’s important if you want a craving-worthy chicken sandwich without piling on the pounds. Nando’s doesn’t put chicken in the deep-fryer; these babies are flame-grilled. And don’t worry, they’ve got a mild version of their Peri-Peri hot sauce (and a lemon and herb variety if you’re that guy).


This chicken sandwich falls a little short of Subway’s healthy sandwich (without fatty sauces or cheese), but it’s leaps and bounds ahead of any fried chicken sandwich with a mere 11 grams of fat (and it matches Subway on carbs).

This chicken sandwich features:

  • Flame-grilled chicken breast
  • Arugula
  • Tomato
  • Pickled red onions
  • Peri-Peri mayo
  • Toasted Portuguese roll
  • Calories: 445
  • Fat: 11
