General rule of thumb is half a pound per person (usually means some leftovers, too).

8 oz per person but you always want some leftovers so err on getting more instead of less. Breast dries easily so I would rub in olive oil and bake skin up. I have been successful at poking with a fork and poaching in chicken broth to re- introduce moisture.

I usually figure 1 lb per guest, so I'd go with a 12-13 pound bird...have to take in to concideration the waste and bones. Happy Thanksgiving!
