That should cut it, depending on your audience. You are looking at 5.33 oz per.

Does it have a bone? If it does, then you may be close.

I was thinking either 3 or 4 - 8# breast ,bone-in I think would yield 6# of meat.

3 breast = 18# / 24 would be .75# per person. Is 3/4 # per person ok?

Most folks figure 1/4 pound of meat per person if you are serving sides, etc. I use 1/3 pound just to be safe.
