Question Cooking 20 chicken breasts

Have put a rub on them and have left them overnight in fridge to marinate. Whats the best way to cook them? I'm hoping to put them in the oven. Do I need to cover them? Can I cook all 20 at same time on 2 different shelves or am I better off doing them in batches? Do I need to extend cooking time?

Would normally fry / bbq them but don't think I have time to cook all 20 like that.

Lots of questions I know, but am putting together a surprise party for my husband and the stress level is high

What type of chicken breasts? Boneless skinless? Bone-in? Skin on? Are you just cooking them dry, or doing them in a sauce?

If boneless, you "might" get away with cooking them on 2 shelves, switching them midway during the cooking time; otherwise, I'd do them in batches. As far as cooking time, since I've never done a large amount like that, I can only advise that I'd count on allowing a little extra time, & use one or two "sacrifice" pieces to cut into to test for doneness.
