Wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve, peel, and thinly slice the onion. Peel the carrots; halve lengthwise, then thinly slice on an angle. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic.

In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the breadcrumbs and oregano; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until golden brown. Transfer to a bowl; stir in the cheese. Wipe out the pan.

Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until browned and the chicken is cooked through. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a plate.
