Chicken tends to be the go-to choice for anyone watching their calorie intake, due to the relatively low calorie content of chicken. However, the calories in chicken vary according to chicken part, though the greatest difference will be whether or not you eat the chicken skin. The skin of chicken is very high in fat, unlike the rest of the chicken.

3 oz. (about 100 gr) tends to be the average serving size, approximately equivalent to the size of a deck of cards.
