This got my curiousity so I looked it up. I googled how many calories in a whole chicken and the first site to come up was Calorie King. They had the nutrition facts for 4 oz of raw, whole chicken - so I assume they are factoring in the differences between dark and white meat and averaging them out. So I calculated 4.75 pounds into 76 ounces and plugged that into Calorie King. It came back with 4,240 calories, 303.3 grams of fat, 86.7 grams sat fat, 1542 mg cholesterol, 3276 mg of sodium, no carbs, fiber or sugar, calcium and 366.2 grams of protein.
You said you could get the other info, just add it together, divide by the portion sizes and check out the damage.
I've made this soup with cut up chicken breast and whole wheat cheese tortellini and it wasn't bad. Cut back on alot of the fat and carbs.
If the BF won't let you remove the skin before cooking, at least let it cool down and skim the fat off of the top of the soup.
