I'm kinda pissed at my stupidity.

For the past 2-3 months of cutting I've been basing my facts on this...

4 oz raw chicken - 110 calories

so thats means 5 oz breast = 140 calories

but actually 3 oz cooked chicken = 110 calories

so its really 5 oz breast = 180 calories.

I eat 2-3 breasts a day so that means my calorie count has been off 80-120 calories everyday :(

Damn it. Im soo pissed at myself.

Sorry to hear that. The extra protein might have been good tho.

Same exact thing happened to me when I started counting my cals last year.
The back of the bag didn't label cooked weight so I always had too much for a few months. My chicken is 110 cals for 84g cooked weight, pretty sure that's the same as 3 oz.

Why would 100 calories make a difference?

Always weigh foods before cooking them:

"Damn it. Im soo pissed at myself." 80 to 100 cals does not mean anything it could be the difference between a busy day at work and a slow one.

Has it affected your progress any?

As long as you were consistent, it really doesn't matter what you thought your calorie count was if you were making progress.

80-100 calories is MINIMAL and I don't think you should stress yourself out about this. There are so many other factors during the day that can change your "plan" rather than a couple calories.

No it hasn't... But how would I know? lol

Well sure if I had 200 calories extra I'd still be cutting, just slower.
