Grilled Chicken Strips

Most crispy chicken strips and nuggets contain breaded meat, which has too many carbs to be eaten on a keto diet.

According to the nutrition information, Jack In The Box offers grilled chicken strips that contain 199 calories, 7 grams of fat, 5 grams of carbs, 0 grams of fiber, and 43 grams of protein for every four pieces.

We noticed that the grilled chicken strips are not offered on the main website. You may have to ask if your Jack In The Box location offers these.

What to order: a four-piece order of the grilled chicken strips with ranch dipping sauce. 

Grilled Chicken Salad

The grilled chicken salad comes with grilled chicken, cheddar cheese, tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, and croutons over a bed of lettuce with low-fat balsamic dressing.

If you get it without croutons or dressing, it will contain 230 calories, 8 grams of fat, 12 grams of carbs (8 grams net carbs), 4 grams of fiber, and 30 grams of protein. 

Ask for ranch dressing instead of low-fat balsamic to keep your carbs down.
