I'm having a dinner party for 15 and am planning on serving roast chicken as one of the courses. It's a tuscan theme and I will be starting with some light antipasti followed by the first course of risotto and gnudi. The chicken will be the main course along with some roast vegetables as a side and followed by fruit/cheese then dessert. I'm trying to determine how many pounds of chicken I will need. Given the amount of courses, the portions won't have to be very large. Any suggestions on how much chicken I will need? I'm assuming 2 birds of about 5-6 lbs each. Does that sound about right?
