Add the chicken to a large ziploc bag together with the flour, oregano, salt and pepper.

Heat the oil in a large frying pan, over medium-high heat.
Add the chicken and cook on all sides until golden brown, for about 8-10 minutes in total.
You may need to cook the chicken in batches, to avoid overcrowding the pan.
