Chicken Breasts

How many grams (pre-cooked weight) would be about 70g of protein after I cook it? More simply put- how many grams/pounds do I have to cook to end up with 70g of protein

    Off the top of my head I believe a chicken breast is about 25-30g of protein per 100g, so you would probably need 250g or so to get 70g of protein.

    Is that the weight before you cook it or after?

    Thats before, it'll be lighter after due to some water loss. Of course protein will be the same.

    True but if its 250g after, then it will be more meat becuase its the weight without the water

    yes the protein level will be the same after you have cooked the raw 250g

    if you were handed a cooked breast that weighed 250g post cooking, then yes it would have more protein than the raw 250g

    About 23g of protein per 100g uncooked of skinless boneless chicken breasts.
