Its 28.35grams = 1 oz .... an 8oz breast (Like I buy the roided out chickens ) = 226.8 grams...

6. Are you asking how many total grams, or how many grams of protein? Check fitday.com for good nutritional info on many different foods.

7. I find grams are much easier to use than ounces. Well I think metric in general makes so much more sense.

But it's easy to figure out in grams. Chicken is usually between 17-20% protein. Therefore, if you use between 100-125g of chicken (regular sized breast) you will get around 22g protein on average.
