- I'm trying to figure out how that one chicken dish can have more calories than a 12-piece bucket of KFC. They're both chicken, and the KFC is fried.
From what I understand (and I would quote if I remembered the source), big chain restaurants will research and implement ways to make food easier to chew and swallow (so that you eat more), but intentionally produce food that has no nutritional value that causes you get hungry again quickly. Fat and salt make things taste better, and they are relatively cheap, so they can be injected into cheaper, lower quality foods to make them taste normal. Also, portions at sit down restaurants are bigger so they can justify the steadily rising costs.
