I would count it for the other nutrients involved- especially the sodium. Calorie-wise it won't affect your day, so add it in. :)

calories do not evaporate---the water does. The particles containing the calories are now stuck to your food. But as already stated---it is minimal calories.
PS...the sodium sticks around too...and this could be high.

Considering chicken broth is next to no calories (well, 10 calories for 1 cup), you probably don't need to count it. I include in my recipes though. But again, it's such a nominal amount it doesn't really matter.

I was wondering when you cook with broth and it all evaporates do you still have to count the calories of the broth? I know with oil you do because it is adhered to the food but broth is mostly water.
