    Hi,

    Is Kcal the same as calories...? I'm sorry, math is not my strong point and I just want to make sure. So ONE serving is 1048 calories?

    I so appreciate everything this site does and how accommodating it is. My main concern is I never know what a serving is. There are 4 servings but what does that mean in terms of quantity? This is my biggest challenge with the recipes on here.

    Like one serving is 100 grams of chicken, 3 grams of sauce, 3 grams of spinach etc. That would be SO helpful for math challenged and time strapped people like me. :)

    I have the same problem, it’s frustrating. It doesn’t always work changing the serve to one . Especially with things like Bolognese.

    Hi Kachina!

    But in almost all cases it should work to change the serving size to one.

    This “shake & bake” chicken was delicious, quick to make, and the perfect go-to recipe for a weeknight dinner. I only had boneless, skinless chicken thighs on hand, so that’s what I used. I drizzled them with olive oil prior to baking and cooked them about 10 minutes less. I’ll be making this one again.
