I would use the "chicken breast" option and list the weight. It is probably the same as "roasted chicken," but for meat without added oils, I tend toward what the meat is rather than how it was cooked.

Unless I add oil, I just track it as roasted chicken. Chicken breast is great for the number of different ways you can season it without adding calories. I love it with a little garlic and herbs, then cooled and chopped for salad.

Sounds right to me, although there are some seasonings which I'll track for their nutrients if not for their calories.

I use a lot of minced garlic, and cinnamon, and dill, and fennel - all of which have some iron. Since my iron levels are important to me, I'll include them in my tracking along with the meat. Actually, with the amount of garlic that I use, the calories add up a bit, too, now that I look at it...

Afraid of a colonoscopy? Believe me - they are much less frightening than surgery and chemotherapy.

Colonoscopies allow polyps to be removed before they can become cancer, or let cancers be found before they are too widespread. If you are 50 or older, or have any symptoms, please don't let fear stop you from covering your butt.

Get checked!

I don't over season but I don't track it either!

The change begins with me and it begins now!

I wouldn't worry about the calories in seasoning, however, if you are watching your sodium intake you may want to add it to your tracker.

That is how I make chicken, or I bake it on a cookie sheet

That's what I do as well, although I cook with oil and track the oil as well.

I was just wondering how everyone else tracks this. I made some spicy chicken breast the other day and cooked it on a non-stick grill pan: no added oil. I have just been weighing the chicken and tracking it like roasted chicken in the tracker.

I cook chicken like this, a lot. No oil or butter, but tons of seasoning and I just track it with the cooked chicken in the tracker.

Is this the right way?
