The average weight of one boneless chicken breast with the skin on is around 210-230g/7.4-8.1oz. A chicken breast of this size contains 299-327 calories (in kcal).

Chicken breast weights vary depending on the size of the chicken they came from, a smaller skinless breast weighs around 140-150g/4.94-5.29oz and a large skinless chicken breast can weigh anywhere up to 250g/8.82oz.

How Much Weight Does Chicken Lose When Cooked?

The amount that chicken reduces in weight when it’s cooked, depends on the quality of the chicken and whether it has added water.

Chicken with bones and skin also retains more water than skinless and boneless chicken which will dry out more during the cooking process. This is because the fatty barrier which helps to retain moisture as it cooks.

As a general rule, good quality free-range chicken with no added water will reduce in weight by around 25% when it’s cooked, whereas chicken with added water can reduce in weight by up to 40%.

I did an experiment using a supermarket brand chicken breast weighing 200g and cooked it dry in an oven until cooked through, to see how much it reduced in weight.

As you can see from the image below, the chicken breast reduced in weight from 200g to 123g, which is a reduction of 38.5%.
