Lightly coat each chicken breast in oilve oil.

Put the cookie sheet of chicken breasts in the oven. Allow them to cook for 30 minutes to one hour.
Check them occasionally. When your thickest chicken breast is done, take them out of the oven.
Step 3: Cool and Cut
Give the chicken breasts 20 minutes or so to cool down so you can handle them.
When they're cool enough to handle, cut each chicken breast in half so you have roughly 14 "patties."
