Ive seen many different numbers bandied about on the net bout how much protein a 100g of COOKED chicken breast contains. Does anyone know for sure?

It can vary. There is no exact answer. How it's cooked can affect the count. Eating it with the skin can also affect cal count. I use the cal count for how its cooked (fried, stewed, roasted) and if it has skin or not.

I record it at 32g protein (skinless, boneless).

i count 100g of lean chicken breast (no skin or bones) as 28g of protein.

The one's i've got at the moment are 27g's... but as said - it varies..

very roughly 30g per 100g.

the breasts i eat are 125g and about 40g prot.
