When Should You Weigh Chicken Mini Fillets?
During the research for this article, I’ve noticed that chicken calories vary between stores and also between different brands.
While you would think chicken calories would be the same across the board, it can become confusing when you’re trying to work out weights for calorie counting or meal planning. On top of this, some packs show calorie information for cooked weights instead of raw weights.
As a rule, meat should be weighed when it’s raw because pack calories are generally based on a raw weight. Chicken loses weight during the cooking process, so it’s important that if you’re using a cooked chicken weight calorie information that you weigh chicken as per the cooked weight and vice versa.
How Much Weight Do Chicken Mini Fillets 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.
Because chicken mini fillets don’t have skin or bone, they have the potential to dry out more than a chicken leg or a whole chicken.
As a general rule, good quality free-range chicken with no added water will reduce in weight by around 25% when it’s cooked, but if it’s allowed to dry out, chicken has the potential to lose up to 40% of the original weight.
