 Coat the trimmed chicken with the olive oil & sprinkle both sides of each piece generously with kosher salt & coarse pepper. Grill over direct Medium-High heat {350 to 400 degrees} 6 to 7 minutes per side or until the chicken registers 165 degrees. Remove it from the grill & let stand 10 minutes. Slice the chicken into strips.
