Heat a grill pan or large skillet. Drizzle chicken with EVOO to cover, and season with grill seasoning blend or salt and pepper. Grill or pan fry six minutes on each side.

Heat broiler, lightly toast rolls on cookie sheet and remove.

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add two tablespoons EVOO, garlic, crushed red pepper flakes, mushrooms, peppers, onions and oregano. Sauté veggies and season with salt and pepper. Cook five minutes, then deglaze the pan with wine or stock. Pick up tasty bits off the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon or heat safe spatula. Add tomatoes and parsley to the sauce.
