    • Brittany,

      Our nutrition labels are being re-done.

      We swapped our Recipe Software on the entire website and things got a little wonky with the nutrition labels.

      The serving size is not 1g for this recipe. My apologies.

      A serving size is half a chicken breast. I have updated the nutrition for this recipe.

      Sorry for the inconvenience.

      Anthony
