Which food from the database?

I'm back on the MFP bandwagon (again!) and feel really committed to this. My husband laughs at my kitchen scale, but he won't be laughing when we both lose weight! So far, I've lost almost 7 pounds, but still another 60 to go (at least!).

One thing I'm struggling with now though is knowing which of the million entries in the database is the correct one. For instance, last night we had boneless chicken for dinner. There have to be at least 25 entries for skinless, boneless chicken. This wasn't a particular brand, so I'm confused about the 'generic' items.

I know that entries are verified, but sometimes even the ones with the checkmarks don't seem to fit.

Any hints/tips?
