Place the chicken between two pieces of plastic wrap and pound to a uniform thickness of approximately 1/2 inch thick. Combine the next 5 ingredients (oil through pepper flakes) in a small saucepan and sauté until fragrant (approximately 1 minute). Remove from the heat and let cool.

Grill the chicken directly over the fire for 4 minutes per side, then 2 more minutes on the first side (lid closed).
