    Hi really enjoyed reading your article and was wondering How many calories in a chicken lettuce & mayo sandwich, on wholemeal bread?

  • Mark says:

    @Chris,

    About 500 calories depending on how you prepare your sandwich. The amount of chicken and mayo you put on the sandwich will change the above value. With every bit of extra chicken and mayo you put, you will be eating more calories.
