Hey there, so I need half a pound of chicken breast for my chicken noodle soup, how many chicken breasts would this be?

Chicken breast come in different sizes. Some 4 oz–so 2 would be half pound. if it is 6 oz–then 1 and 1/4. if 8 oz–then that is half pound!

    Depends how big they are, look on the packaging.

    It depends, boneless-skinless or bone in? It also depends on the size. The last ones I got that were bone in, were enormous!

    Boneless-skinless I’d say 2.

    They normally weigh 3 to 6 oz for boneless and 4 to 8 oz for bone-in. So, anywhere from 1 to 3 would equal half a pound, depending on what size you get and whether it’s bone-in or boneless.

    I would use a couple, or 4 thighs. Thigh meat is cheaper and has more taste.

    normally skinless average weight is between 160-175gms each.
    1 lrg for 2 people will make a tasty soup.

    Probably 2, give or take a couple of ounces.

    Depends how big the breasts are. If you’re just making soup then you don’t need to be exact on the weight of the chicken, just eyeball it.
