    What single portion size is the chicken breast? Metric uncooked please.

    Exactly. PLEASE can you answer Heather who wrote in 2017!!! PLEASE can we have some weights for all this stuff? Chicken breasts can vary. It's not enough to say just one chicken breas for one person! Means I can't cook the recipe. We cook by weights in Britain! Thanks.

    Una, again, our apologies for older questions that went unanswered. I have been working with the Diet Doctor team for a couple of months now and answering new questions here on the Diet Doctor website is my priority! Any size chicken breast that you would normally purchase will work for this recipe.

    That doesn't make any sense. The Nutritional information is based on a certain weight of chicken breast. Particularly for the protein measurement. Can you get this recipe re-calibrated?

    I really enjoyed the clean and simple flavors of the veggies and spices. I ended up baking the veggies for about 45min.

    I don´t know whether my maths wrong or not. But simply by estimating it, 83 grams can´t be 70% of more than 150 grams. How do you calculate that, did I miss something?

    Fat is more calorically dense than either carbs or protein. Carbs and protein have 4 calories per gram whereas fat has 9.

    So the percent refer to the calories and not the grams and the calories are the important part on keto not the grams?

    The %age refers to the percentage of calories, yes, and yes, it's the percentages that are more important than the grams.

    These vegetables took longer than 20 minutes to roast, more like 45. Also can anyone tell me how to roast vegetables with olive oil and not end up with a house full of smoke?? Thanks!

    45 minutes at 400F? I would double check your temperature settings. For the chicken, butter has a higher smoke point than olive oil and may work better for you. Bacon fat and coconut oil are good options also.
