Subway Sub of the Month – Chipotle Chicken & Cheese

For June 2011, Subway is featuring the Chipotle Chicken & Cheese as their Sub of the Month.  In its second consecutive month of chicken-based featured subs, this month Subway offers a sub can be ordered any time of the year, though this month at a special price.

Whereas the May Orchard Chicken Salad was a health-conscious offering which Subway’s Nutrional Information easily depicts, this month you need to breakdown the sandwich into its components to see the full details on how this sub stacks up into your daily food intake.  To me, the numbers are a little surprising, but in reality the sandwhich stacks up very similar to the 6″ Buffalo Chicken with regular Ranch dressing.

Nutritional Value
June 2011 Feature
6″ Chipotle Chicken
& Cheese
The Breakdown
6″ 9-grain wheat bread +
grilled chicken strips + chipotle sauce +
montery jack cheese + veggies
(b + chx + s + chs + v)
210 + 80 + 100 + 50 + 15
2 + 1.5 + 10 + 4 + 0
40 + 0 + 1 + 0 + 3
5 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 0
8 + 16 + 0 + 3 + 0

The above table uses only the initial amount of Chipotle Southwest sauce added to the chicken prior to its cooking and uses montery jack cheese as my recommended cheese considering the spicy flavor profile of the sandwhich.  Other cheeses will vary by  +/- 5 calories, and +/- 1g in fat and protein.

If you are looking to indulge in this “feature” flavor, then this is the month to do it as it is being offered as a  $5 footlong.  However, if you’d going to Subway as a health-conscious meal, I recommend the 6″ Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki without cheese, where you’ll save yourself 75 calories and 13g of fat on the 6″ sandwhich.

In July the Sub of the Month will be the traditional Italian B.M.T.(R) offered as a $5 footlong.
