I don't consider a penny a calorie much of a bargain. It's quite expensive, actually, even for lean meats and fabulous veggies. Hubby and I eat at least 4,000 calories per day (he about 2200, me about 1800), and we don't spend $1200 dollars a month on groceries and eating out - not even close.

We're eating pretty well (in terms of health and variety) for about 1/3 to 1/4 a penny per calorie (quite often much less).

I've had the grilled chicken, and the pieces were quite small in comparison to their fried chicken pieces. Some of which, I chalked up to the space taken up by the breading, but I think the pieces were still noticeably smaller.

I would also guess that they migh be assuming you're going to remove the skin (if so, I'm sure it's in the fine print somewhere).
