The best way to solve this is to weigh the chicken uncooked. Cooking methods vary so much that it is nearly impossible to know how much moisture has been removed, thus affecting the cooked weight. I buy chicken breasts in bulk, then trim, weigh and bag them in 3 ounce portions before freezing. It's a giant pain in the butt, but worth it in the long run.

What cooking method is Sparkpeople referencing and what cooking methods are "most other websites" using? Nutritiondata.com has these options nutritiondata.self.com/foods-chicken%20bre

depending on how it is cooked. Also important is your unit of measurement. A small breast could be 70 grams (just over 2 oz) while a large breast might be 140 grams (5 oz) or more, so breast isn't a particularly helpful unit when it comes to measuring chicken.

-google first. ask questions later.

Since is the practically the only protein I consume, I need to know the accurate calorie count for fresh, boneless, skinless cooked chicken breast. Sparkpeople says 103, yet most other website say 130.
