Bang for Your Buck!

There is some debate as to whether chicken is 1 block of protein per ounce or per ounce and a half. I would love to hear what the general opinion is on this issue.
Chicken Stir Fry
4 oz chicken cut into strips ( 3 blocks of protein) until I do further research I figured I would cut the difference down the middle
1 1/2 cups broccoli cut into small pieces( 1 block carb)
2 cups cauliflower chopped (1 block carb)
1/2 red bell pepper (1/4 block carb)
1/2 green bell pepper (1/4 block carb)
1 cup celery chopped (1/2 block carb)
6 cashews chopped(2 blocks fat)
2/3 tsp olive oil ( 1 block fat)
Saute chicken in olive oil until browned. Add veggies and cook until tender.
