Scale??? Everyone on this plan should have one, if you are at the grocery store they are all around...

If at the store, the Gross WT should be on the chicken...

Normally a breast is 1/4 to 1/2 a pound. 1/2 pound = 8 oz if that helps?

It depends on the size of the chicken. I've weighed a lot of chicken over my decades of dieting, and I'd say that 7 to 10 ounces of meat would be a pretty good guesstimate.

I know it's a pretty wide range, but chicken piece sizes really vary a lot. I've had breasts that barely yielded 3 ounces of meat, and others more than twice that.

If you can't weigh, a decent visual guideline is that one ounce is the size of your thumb, and 3-4 ounces is the size of your hand without the fingers.

i always heard that 3-4 ounces was about the same size and thickness of a regular size deck of cards....maybe that can be used as a gauge for you to decide.
sounds delicious anyway, enjoy!!
