"When a recipe calls for cooked, diced chicken, I never know how much uncooked chicken to cook or buy. Can you help?"

To end up with four cups diced chicken, cook 1 1/3 pounds of raw, skinless boneless chicken. Or, buy a cooked rotisserie chicken that weighs between 2 1/3-3 pounds. By the time you take off the skin and bones, you'll end up with the right amount.

It may also be helpful to know that 4 cups of diced chicken will weigh about 20 ounces.
