Preheat the oven. Preheat the oven to 350°. Place chicken breasts, rounded side facing up, onto a cutting board.
Slice chicken breast in half. Place one hand on top of the chicken breast. With a sharp knife, carefully cut the chicken breast in half lengthwise. Repeat.
Pound the chicken thin. Place chicken breast between two pieces of plastic wrap. Using a kitchen mallet or rolling pin, pound or roll the chicken until it's about 1/2 inch thick and all areas are of equal thickness. This helps tenderize the chicken and allows for even baking.
Prepare the baking pan. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil to the baking pan. Spread over the bottom of the pan with a pastry brush or the back of a spoon. Using tongs, place chicken onto the baking pan.
Season the chicken. Add the rest of the olive oil to the chicken using the pastry brush to spread. Season with plenty of salt and pepper.
Bake. Bake chicken breast for 15-20 minutes or until the internal temperature is 165°F. Serve with a side salad and rolls for a complete dinner.
