Hardee's / Carl's Jr.'s Big Chicken Fillet Sandwich Weighs In

Hardee's and Carl's Jr. introduced their "Big Chicken Fillet Sandwich" in May and yesterday they added the 'hot' Jalapeno version.

They both feature "a premium five-ounce chicken breast fillet seasoned in Southern spices, breaded and served on a Fresh Baked Bun with lettuce, tomato and red onion." The Jalapeno version adds "spicy jalapenos, pepper-Jack cheese and creamy Santa Fe Sauce." A bacon and Swiss version is also available.

The 'Big Chicken' weighs in at 331 grams.  That's more than the weight of 2 McDonald's Double Cheeseburgers.  And it has a 'round' 800 calories and 45 grams of fat.  The 'Big Chicken' has 2060 mg of Sodium, that's more than the amount of Sodium in 7 Large French Fries from McDonald's!  Full nutrition information below.
