Ingredients You'll Need
1 TBSP olive oil

Brush both sides of chicken cutlets with herb-oil mixture, then sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Heat large, heave, oven proof sklillet over a high flame. (we use cast iron)
Add chicken cutlets, and cook until brown, about 1 minute per side. Remove from heat.
Spoon marinara sauce over and around chicken.

Dot tops with butter pieces.
Place skillet in oven, and bake until cheese melts and cutlets are cooked through, about 5 minutes.
