You can purchase a food scale from Target for about $4. No food scales don't have to be fancy! A portion of chicken breast would be about the size of one cooked breast and wing from a Cornish game hen. Regular chicken breast needs to be halved as it is actually about 8 oz. One "portion" is usually accepted at somewhere between 3-6 oz. depending. Most literature I have read defaults it to 4 oz. Hope this helps

Hi, I don't have a food scale, so I buy the Perdue prepackaged individual portioned chicken breast. I love them because each are 4oz, and I just use one at a time without cutting anything in half. It's about $7 something for 6 of them, so if you want to save some time and not measure, all the work is done for you.

Quick question on chicken breasts: is the "slab" I get out of the package a whole breast or a half breast? I noticed the default portion size is for 1/2 a breast, so does that mean 1/2 of my slab?

Thanks. I have a food scale and will definitely use that to measure it.

I bought a kitchen scale at Target and it was the best thing I ever did. I don't have to eyeball anything anymore.

It's about the size of a deck of cards, or 3 ounces cooked. You'd measure that with a kitchen scale.

A serving size would a large breast fillet or cut into halves...this would equal approximately 1 serving of chicken breast meat...there is also a with or without skin on the tracker too ~smiles~.

What is the correct portion size for a chicken breast and how do I measure it?
