How Much to Buy

  • Boneless Chicken Breasts: For each person, count on having 4-5 oz. of cooked chicken, and allow an extra ounce for shrinkage. For each person, you should buy 5-6 oz. or 20-24 oz. for four people.
  • Bone-in Chicken: Buy about 8 oz. per person, which should yield 4-5 oz. of meat per serving. For four people, purchase about 32 oz. of chicken.
