The package you bought the chicken in has a weight, and nutrition info as the chicken is packaged.
So if you get 6 chicken breasts, and it comes to 3.23 lbs.. that is 51.68 ozs. ( weight X 16 ozs )
divide that by 6 ( # of chicken breasts ), and you have 8.61 ozs per breast. You can cut that in 2, and have 4.305 oz servings, which is slightly higher than an actual serving, but as long as you count it correctly, the calories, and nutrition will add up. This is less messy than weighing cooked chicken.
I try to find packages that have weights that are about 1/2 as many lbs as pieces of chicken, so the breasts are 8 ozs each (so 6 breasts at at 3 lbs ) and then I can just cut them in half , and count them as 4 oz servings. I freeze them separately as 12 servings, so I am not weighing chicken when it is time to cook. I do it immediately after grocery shopping.
Doing this when you aren't in a hurry to finish dinner, prevents mistakes from being made.
