So how many calories are in three ounces of chicken? Jolene Caufield, a senior health care adviser, told HuffPost that there are about 110 calories in each serving, but warned that people should pay extra attention to the packaging while they’re shopping for meals.
“Chicken breasts found in grocery stores nowadays are much bigger than that,” Caufield said. “Consumers might not be aware of the different sizes chicken breasts come in, which leads them to consume more calories than they intend to.”
While chicken breast is still an excellent choice if you’re monitoring calories, keep in mind what that serving size actually means. If you’re not a calorie counter, which, who can blame you, this might not be a revelation. At the end of the day, as long as you’re getting the essential nutrients in your diet while being mindful of portions you should be doing fine. But if you’re curious, there are always the nutritional facts to consider during your weekly shopping trips.
