I normally only cook 2 chicken breasts at a time buy right now I'm trying to bake 5 in the oven. The package weighed just over 3 pounds of boneless breast. What's a recommend temp. and cook time for this?

As long as you keep them separated and similarly exposed, cook them same time as you do 2. (30-40 minutes @ 350) depending on size of the breasts.

Hmm, they sheet I had is kinda small so they're bunched close together. Is flipping them half way necessary?

I would most likely cook them the same as you normally do.

When I'm in doubt I use a thermometer to be sure.

Cut the thickest one open when you think it's done and make sure juices are all clear.

I took one out and cut it, there's not a whole lot of juice but it does seem clear. It's been over 50 min now at 400

Ouch~! OK... likely overdone. Live and learn 400 is too high for chicken and 50 minutes way too long. 350 max 30 -40 min.

I have found that 400° can be used to "speed cook" a chicken and it will be moist, but it was also tough. Fifty minutes for chicken breast at 400° is definitely too long and hot.
