Calorie result from mfp

So, upon entering a recipe it shows the calories as 1,500 (more or less) but I suspect that in reality that can't be right. The reason I question it is that the recipe calls for 3/4 cup panko & 1/4 cup flour plus 1/2 a stick of butter (melted), but in fact you only roll the drumsticks in the panko flour mix and brush on a bit of the butter so I always have tons left over for another day. Any suggestions on how to fix this issue so have something more in line with what the calories actually are???

    Weigh how much panko is put in the cup in grams. Then weigh the contents after you’ve finished. The missing amount is what’s been used. Apply the same method to the butter or any other aspect to a recipe. Granted it will take slightly longer however it would give more accurate results
