Amanda is a co-founder of Food52.
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.
