Yes, yes, yes I know this is a very non-scientific bad way to calculate calories. Save me the judgement ;) But estimates for this dish vary WIDELY.

So I thought it would be fun to ask everyone for their GUESSTIMATE.

Chicken, onion, broccoli, sliced thin carrot, rice and peanut sauce. Only measurement I know is 1 full cooked cup of white rice. It's a Thai dish.

The first picture, there is chicken, broccoli etc under the rice. The rice is on top of it.

Ok, go! :)

    There seems to be a lot of brown gravy so I would go with 775

    Peanut sauce!

    And I agree, that's why I was going for 700's.

    My thought was 200 for rice, 150 for chicken, 250 for peanut sauce, and 150 for the rest.

    I agree .
    Peanut sauce is likely about 400 calories for a half of a cup. If she was able to coat all of that food in the sauce , then there was probably a lot in there. I would imagine this meal is within the 700 calorie range for sure.

    This thread is turning into an interesting example of how humans are terrible as guessing calorie consumption.

    That rice is about a cup and a half to 2 cups so around 350- 400 the chicken is another 300+ so around 700+

    The rice is one cup.

    It comes as a side in a 1 cup container, and to verify I took it out of the container and put it into a cup measuring device.
