Cooked chicken weight

Once or twice a week I pick up some chicken kabobs from my favorite kabob place. The weight cooked is always pretty consistent weighing 5.9 to 6.3 ounces. Should I be adding a bit more weight to compensate it being cooked vs raw. When I cook chicken at home I always weigh it raw.

I'm 6ft 184.8lbs at around 12% body fat cutting down to 10%. I've been working out 5 days a week and eating 2100 calories a day using the keto diet. I figured it would be best for me since I'd keep the protein high to preserve muscle, and keep fats high to maintain libido and hormones. I've...
