I'm trying to add up my meal from a restaurant. I'm going to have a mixed greens salad with grilled chicken breast and calorie counts for chicken is always hard for me unless I make it myself. What do you use as a calorie count for an ounce of grilled chicken? What size/calories do you usually count for grilled chicken breast on a restaurant salad? Thanks!

I typically assume 6-8oz chicken for a restaurant serving. If it is boneless/skinless, that is around: 165 cal (6 oz) 3.5g fat 35g protein 220 cal (8 oz) 5g fat 46g protein I took this from Tyson. I tend to estimate higher serving sizes for restaurants to account for hidden calories from fat. A serving - which is around 4oz - is typically the size of your palm. Of course if it is diced up, well, you can always ask the wait person how much chicken is on the salad. They might know, depending on the restaurant. Have a fun time!
