 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1 1/2   tb           Olive oil
    2                    Whole small chicken breasts
                         - skinless and boneless
                         - split and blotted dry
                         Salt
                         Freshly ground black pepper
      3/4   c            Purchased marinara sauce
                         -ÿÿSpaghetti sauce
    1       t            Dried oregano -- crumbled
    8       oz           Fresh mozzarella cheese
                         - thinly sliced
 
   IN A LARGE, HEAVY oven-proof skillet, heat the oil until hot and almost
   smoking. Add the chicken breasts, turn back down to medium-high heat and
   saute until lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
   Turn and cook the second side for 1 minute. Remove the breasts, let them
   cool slightly, then slice into a fan. Return the chicken to the pan, pour
   over the marinara or spaghetti sauce, sprinkle on the oregano, place the
   mozzarella slices on top. Turn on your broiler and adjust the rack to 6
   inches from the heat. Run under the broiler until the cheese is hot and
   bubbling. Serve at once with boiled orzo pasta.
