if you accurately enter in all of the ingredients, then you will have the calories for the whole pot. then there are two ways you divide this out to what you're eating at a meal.
1. pick a container to weigh the total yield in. so if your crockpot has an insert that you can take out, weigh it before you put anything in and note the weight. then weigh it again with the fully cooked recipe. subtract the weight of the pot and you have the total weight of your recipe. so if your chicken made 500 grams, you might decide that's 10 50 gram portions. so when you serve yourself, serve out a 50 gram portion. if you find yourself with a 75 gram portion, remember to enter that in as 1.5 servings.
2. when the recipe is done, serve the whole pot into equal portion containers. so instead of dishing directly onto your plate you would serve everything into 1 or 2 cup containers and then count up how many cups it made. enter that as your serving and stick to the portioned cup serving [or two or however many you decide are appropriate].
