    Chicken
    nuggets are a fast-food favorite.
  
  I tried the chicken nuggets at McDonald's,
  Burger
  King, Wendy's,
  Chick-Fil-A,
  Shake
  Shack, and KFC to see
  which chain does them best.
  
  The chicken nuggets at Wendy's won out with their crispy
  coating, juicy chicken, and balanced flavor. At around 40 cents a
  nugget, they were also the best value.

  Chicken nuggets are beloved by all - except maybe vegetarians.

  It's easy to see why. They're inoffensive, easy to eat, and low
  in calories compared to other fast-food options. They're also the
  ideal vehicle for your dipping sauce of choice.

  But like most fast foods, not all chicken nuggets are created
  equal. A chicken nugget should be crispy on the outside, juicy on
  the inside, and has a balanced flavor.

  I went to six fast-food chains in pursuit of this perfect chicken
  nugget. The competitors were: Shake Shack, Chick-fil-A, KFC,
  Wendy's, McDonald's, and Burger King. All prices were what I paid
  in the New York City location I visited.
