    Does anyone know if the weights given for chicken etc on 810 are cooked or uncooked? I've read through the page again in the yellow book and it doesn't say! As I'm having my chicken breast off a whole roast chicken, it'll be tricky to work it out if it's uncooked weight I'm supposed to be measuring!

    I think both is fine.. I don't think the weight varies sooo much that it'll be bad for you to weigh cooked vs uncooked.

    I always weigh it uncooked because I put the rest away (and don't cook the rest) but think weighing it cooked should be fine too.

    I'm not a CDC or a pro though, so be sure to wait for their (final!! oehh) advice on this!

    Enjoy the chicken :)

    I did, thank you! It was so nice to smell something cooking and actually be able to eat it for a change!

    Hehe :D

    I alternated between weighing it cooked and uncooked, depending on whether I was cooking it or eating it out of a packet :D

    I don't think the weight varies much, so I don't think it matters.

    I was going to say uncooked, but then a couple of times I had cooked chicken from a Supermarket and I just did the same amount anyway.
