Pat the chicken dry with paper towels. Season 2 chicken breasts on both sides with salt, pepper, and the oregano. Season the remaining chicken breasts on both sides with salt, pepper, and enough of the spice blend to coat (you may have extra). Transfer to the sheet pan. Roast 18 to 20 minutes, or until browned and cooked through.* Transfer to a cutting board and carefully slice crosswise.

*An instant-read thermometer should register 165°F

Meanwhile, peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the beef; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently and breaking the meat apart with a spoon, 4 to 6 minutes, or until browned. Add the chopped garlic.
