Combine salsa ingredients in a medium bowl, season with salt and pepper. Salsa can be made up to one day in advance, but bring to room temperature before serving.

Preheat grill or grill pan to high heat. Place chicken cutlets in a large zip-top plastic bag. Add olive oil, lemon juice, oregano, garlic, salt, and pepper. Turn to coat chicken, marinate in the refrigerator 15 minutes.

Oil grill grates or pan. Grill cutlets two to three minutes per side, or until lightly browned and cooked through. Remove chicken from grill and serve with salsa.
