  • 4 (5-to 6-ounces) chicken cutlets
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 8 tablespoons jarred tomato sauce
  • 8 ounces shredded mozzarella


  • Heat grill pan over medium high heat until hot.
  • Toss chicken with oil and 1/2 teaspoon each of salt and pepper.
  • Cook chicken, in batches if necessary, in grill pan until grill marks appear on bottom side, 3 to 4 minutes. Turn cutlets over and spread 2 tablespoons sauce on each cutlet. Divide cheese between cutlets, sprinkling over sauce, then cover grill pan. Continue to cook until chicken is cooked through and cheese is melted, about 2 minutes.
