I eat the amount shown with my hand, just 1 pre-sliced thing.

This is the nutrition info.

Is the amount I eat, really only 4oz?

Net Weight is 4.87 lbs.

Multiply 4.87lbs by 16 ounces and you have 77.92 Ounces

Round to 78. Now do 78 divided by how many pieces of chicken there are (assuming they are relatively the same size) and you now have ounces per piece of chicken.

Or you can get a scale =)

No one really knows unless you get a scale.

By hand a 4 oz portion is usually the size of a deck of cards.

Its really hard to eyeball though. Best ways to make sure,

1. Get a scale
2. Buy the chicken pre packaged with the "serving sizes" and "sevings per container" pre-determined(not very cost effective, but it is out there).
3. or like the guy above said, get really "mathy" and figure it out that way.

Ok, so that would come to 7.8oz per chicken. So each serving I eat comes to about 240 calories and 44 protein. <_<

If you read the nutrition facts those numbers (Fat/Pro/CHO) are for 4oz. The servings per container are varied.

Short answer get a scale. I got mine for $9.99 at GNC.

By a scale and weigh it after you cook it. Your label says it has added chicken broth, so the breats will shrink and lose weight as they cook.
