Beside this, does chicken weigh more or less when cooked?

Weighing your food raw is most accurate because when you cook any food it either absorbs water or water evaporates. For example, 100 grams of uncooked chicken will weigh less than 100 grams once it's cooked. The weight change will depend on the cooking method and time.

Also, how many ounces is 4 ounces of raw chicken? So, for example, 4 ounces of raw boneless skinless chicken breast yields about 3 ounces of cooked chicken, or 21 g of protein.

Simply so, how do you convert raw weight to cooked weight?

We have 2.38 (4 ounce) servings, or 57g protein, 0g carbs, 2g fat. That's it; weigh your meat raw. If you can't weigh your meat raw, go ahead and multiply the weight of your cooked meat by a 1.1 – 1.5 as described above to appropriately apply the meat's nutrition facts.

How much is 4 oz of raw meat?

When the chicken is cooked, the meat should feel firm rather than jiggly or rubbery. Ideally, it should also not be tight (a sign of overcooking). When you're peeking at the juices near the inner thigh, check out the meat. If it looks like it's undercooked, roast the bird longer.
