Protein in a Chicken Leg
First up, we are calling the thigh plus drumstick, minus foot, a chicken leg. Some people call this the “Maryland” portion. Then, we are using a typical commercial broiler chicken as the model. This type has a leg which weighs 400g, bone in, when prepared for sale in the supermarket. By this reckoning, a raw chicken leg contains 80 grams of protein, whilst a cooked chicken leg has 76 grams of protein. Larger or smaller chicken legs will have more or less protein than this.
