How To Measure 4 oz Chicken Breast
Of course, most chicken breasts don’t weigh 4 oz. So how do you measure a 4 oz serving of chicken? I have a few different ways to do it – with or without a scale.
With No Scale
First, you could try to buy packages of chicken breasts in 4 oz increments such as 12, 16, 20, 24, etc. Most of the time, chicken is sold by the pound, which would be 0.75, 1.00, 1.25, and 1.50 lbs.
Next, cook all the chicken and divide it into equal portions. For example, if you bought 1.00 lb (16 oz) of chicken breasts, you would divide it into four equal portions after cooking (16oz / 4oz = 4 servings).
Don’t worry about being perfect. If one portion is 3.5 oz and another is 4.5 oz, that’s okay! Because, over a few days, it all evens out.
