Whole chicken/breast conversion question

Got a recipe for African Chicken Stew that sounds delicious. It calls for a 3 lb roasting chicken, deboned and cut into bite sized pieces. All I have is chicken breast, which should work fine but how much to use? Is 2lbs a good guess or am I way off base?

Yes I would think 2lbs would be a good guess. With something like your stew you do not have to be that precise. a pound here or there won't make a huge difference.

I know it doesn't have to be EXACT of course, I just want to be somewhat close :) I figure a 3 lb roasting chicken minus the bones, gizzards, etc. would come close to 2 lbs. I guess I'll go with that. It's my first shot at an African dish, so I'm hoping it comes out nicely.

Two pounds of chicken breast should work just fine.
