So that is 165 calories per 100 grams. Do you guys have it any different? I cook mine in the oven with no oil or anything added and the water that seeps out of it seems to keep it from not sticking and leave it moist. Lots of water come out, maybe it is cheap chicken breast?

Always weigh your food raw, not cooked.

Why raw?

Why raw?
More consistency. Depending on cooking temp and time you'll lose different amounts of water. If you go by the label for your tracking it will be listed raw as well (at least every piece of meat I've cooked).

Why raw?Water content varies greatly with cooking time\temperature. Water makes up a good part of the weight. Weighing raw makes for consistent weighing.
