One cup cubed or shredded chicken:
- 1 cup of cubed or shredded chicken is about 5 ¼ ounces of cooked, deboned chicken.
- 1 cup of cubed or shredded chicken is also about 1 boiled chicken breast.
Using a whole chicken:
When using a whole chicken, 1 pound of uncooked chicken is about 1 cup of cooked, deboned chicken. For example, a 2 ½ to 3 pound whole chicken, or fryer, will produce about 2 to 3 cups of cooked, cubed chicken.
Using a rotisserie chicken:
You can also purchase a rotisserie chicken to use in your recipe. The average rotisserie chicken is about 2 pounds. The whole chicken will make about 3 cups of chicken- this is about 2 cups of white meat and 1 cups of dark meat. White meat comes from the chicken breast and wings. Dark meat comes from the thighs and drumsticks.
