Brush both sides of chicken with 1½ tablespoons of olive oil and season pepper. Preheat a grill over medium-high heat to about 425 to 450 degrees F.
Brush grill grates lightly with oil then grill chicken for about 4 minutes per side until center registers 160 to 165 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer. Remove and let rest for about 5 minutes then dice into cubes.
