Default Chicken Brest or Split Chicken Breast????

I was wondering which one has more protein, a regular skinless chicken breast, or a bone split chicken brest?

i know that the split brest has more fat, but if you take away the skin how much protein does it still have.

Can I eat one of each throughout the day and still get the same amount of protein needed?

Which is bigger? If it's the same amount of chicken (i.e. similar total weight then the protein amount difference will be negligible. Maybe one gram.

I think how they are cooked will have a bigger contribution to the protein to fat ratios.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

well, the split breast is bigger the the regular because of the breast bone still connected. I just want to know if its that same amount of calories and fat as a regular chicken breast.

Try http://nutritiondata.com

Most of the time, bone in chicken is cooked with the skin on so that will contribute some fat to it even if you don't eat the skin. But if you remove the skin from either type prior to cooking and cook them in similar ways to similar doneness then you end up with something pretty similar. But there is no exact answer.

Once you cut that bone out of the center, you have two breasts.

Simply go by weight. 1oz cooked boneless skinless chicken breast is 9g protein.

Any labels that give macro counts based on one whole breast is going to be inaccurate because not all breasts weigh the same amount. And depending on whether it's been injected with any solutions will change the raw to cooked weight ratios (water and sodium are the most common injections simply for preservation processes). Also, cooking methods can alter raw to cooked weight ratios as well as macros (ie, frying vs griling).
