It's not even a question of "stretching!" 5.4 pounds of turkey breast... is it on or off the bone? If ON, it will depend on how heavy that bone is. but off the bone, there's way more than enough for a generous serving for each.
What are you serving as sides? I'm guessing there will be at least one starch.
Quite frankly most Americans serve (and expect) far too large a portion of everything on their plates. 6 ounces is a generous serving, even though few people serve that "little!"
Do your guests a favor and don't stuff them.
2. To give people a choice
Unless you're running a restaurant, this is unnecessary. Do you know for sure that any of your guests won't enjoy the turkey? That would be the only reason I can see for a second entree.
