Chain length for Ultegra 10 speed

I made an idiot mistake and threw away my old chain before I even thought about comparing the new one to it for length. Anyone have an idea about how long a chain I need for a 39/53 x 11/23 crank/cassette combination? I have just a little experience with this and would prefer to be able to just cut the chain once, and hopefully not subtract/add other links. Thanks! ROn
