I buy frozen chicken the 99% fat free kind. How many pieces equal the 4 ounce serving size??? Two?

how big is the package? divide the weight by the number of pieces to get an idea of how much each piece roughly weighs.

or to be more accurate, just weigh it until you get 4 ounces. not all chicken is the same.

Is it frozen chicken breast? Or frozen chicken tenders, I find the tenders to be about 1-2 ounces a piece, and the breasts 3-4 ounces a piece ( after cooking) Do you have a scale, I would highly reccomend getting one if not, they are great :)

We really need more information than that to tell how many pieces equal 4 oz. Are you buying a whole chicken or breasts or thighs? How much does the package say is in it--as in ounces. Take the total weight of the package (in oz.) and divide by four. That will tell you how many servings are in it and from there you can determine whether you need 1/2 piece, 1 piece, 2 pieces, 1 1/2 pieces to equal four oz.

They are the frozen chicken breasts that look like the size of a small cereal bar.

Most chicken breasts are 4oz.

if you're serious about weight-loss, buy a food scale. mine was about $12US at big lots

Another vote for buying a scale. After you have used it for a while you will be able to judge them very well. I buy most of my chicken from Costco now and some of the fresh ones weigh up to 8oz. I have also bought a lot of bought frozen Lilydale chicken breasts that are consistently 3-4oz.
