Heat 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil in a large, oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat.
Add the cutlets (do in batches to avoid crowding) and cook 3-4 minutes on each side until golden brown and cooked through. (Wipe skillet before repeating with remaining chicken pieces.)
Remove chicken from skillet and pour half of the pasta sauce onto the bottom of the skillet.
Gently lay the chicken on top.
