How To Measure 4 oz Chicken Thighs
You’ll find that most chicken thighs don’t weigh precisely 4 oz. So how do you measure a 4 oz serving? 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 thighs in 4 oz increments such as 8, 12, 16, 20 ounces, and so on. However, most of the time, chicken is sold by the pound, which would be 0.50, 0.75, 1.00, and 1.25 lbs.
Next, cook all the thighs and divide them into equal portions. For example, if you bought 1 lb (16 oz) of chicken, you would divide it into four equal portions after cooking (12oz / 4 servings = 4oz per serving).
Don’t worry about being perfect. Like if one portion is 3 oz and another is 5 oz, that’s okay! Because, over a few days, it all evens out.
As you can see, with some math, you never have to weigh anything!
