How much protein per 100g of chicken breast?

It's a very basic question, I've read between 20 and 34 g per 100g which is quite a difference it makes it tough when trying to work out how much protein I'm eating.

Any help would be helpful, also do most lean meats have a pretty similar protein content. Thanks.

I found it on this app called my fitness pal, its an English app which is pretty accurate, but for chicken breast, skinless it said 33g, I was like no way unless super chicken . 24g seems more realistic. Thanks.

I've been using my fitness pal but I thought 33g per 100g is a bit excessive

if you use a constant source like fitday.com or something similar, then all biases will be uniform. Then you can see changes that are significant, but the actual counts will never be as they are averages.

The variation is probably due to raw vs. cooked weight. 100g of raw chicken becomes less once cooked, since it loses water.

Raw weight - ~23g protein per 100g chicken Cooked weight - ~31g protein per 100g chicken

Looks like 24 grams of protein. It can vary, slightly depending on if you have skin on/off, water content, etc, but I'd use that 24g per 100g number. I've not seen many places claim higher numbers than that, so I suspect that 34g number you found is mistaken or using some odd measurement protocol.
