    Is the chicken fried with a light batter? I think if it is quite thick (like KFC) it is around 8 grams of carb per piece. If there isn't any coating on the chicken and you have a plain salad with dressing(check dressing) cheese raw veges - it is almost a carb free meal. Enjoy!

    Some parents with tiny children count an egg as one gram of carb - so the meat might be 1/2grams - but it is such low gi. if your child was active - it wouldn't count. IMO. :) Watch for lows if having a LOT of fun.:D
