In my experience, which I cooke 8oz portions of chicken daily. 8oz raw chicken breast typically loses about 2oz of water weight when cooked. This will also vary depending uppon how is cooked. The method I use most is stove top with a cooking spray or grill. If you were to boil or cook it in an oven bag the meat may retain more water than the previous two methods

That answer would depend upon the manner in which the chicken is cooked, the conditions in which it was cooked and even the makeup of the particular chicken itself. The only true way to know for your circumstances is to grab a chicken breast, weight it, cook it, and weigh it again. If you are seeking this answer for dietary/nutitional purposes, just remember that all meats nutritional values are calculated in the raw stage. So if you have a 4 oz piece of raw chicken breast and you cook it, because of water loss, etc, it may lose a couple of ounces. However, for nutitional purposes, it's still considered a 4 oz chicken breast. Hope this helps!
