Grill
Season the chicken breasts with the remaining olive oil, salt and pepper. Heat a skillet or grill pan over medium-high heat. Grill the chicken breasts for 3 to 4 minutes on each side until done. Chicken is done when it feels firm to the touch and a meat thermometer inserted in the center reaches 170°F. Transfer chicken to a cutting board. Let rest for 2 to 3 minutes, then chop into bite-sized pieces.
