 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1       tb           Olive oil
    2       sm           Whole chicken breasts, split
                         - skinless and boneless
                         - flattened slightly,
                         - and patted dry
                         Salt
                         Freshly ground black pepper
    1       md           Ripe, flavorful tomato
                         - cut into 4 slices
    1       sm           Log goat cheese
                         - cut into 4 slices
      1/2   tb           Fruity olive oil
    1       tb           Chopped fresh basil leaves
 
   TURN ON YOUR BROILER and adjust the rack to about 6 inches from the heat.
   In a large, heavy oven-proof skillet, heat the oil until hot and almost
   smoking. Add the breasts and saute them over medium heat until lightly
   browned on 1 side, about 3 minutes. Turn, season with salt and pepper, and
   place a slice of tomato with a piece of cheese on top of each cooked side
   of breast. Drizzle on the olive oil, season with black pepper and cook for
   about 1 minute. Transfer the pan to the broiler and cook until the cheese
   is hot and starts to melt slightly on top. Remove the pan, sprinkle on the
   basil, and serve at once.
