1. Simmer sauce on LOW in small saucepan, stirring occasionally.
2. Dust chicken with pan-searing flour; pat off excess. Heat olive oil in pan on MEDIUM-HIGH on stovetop until oil faintly smokes; add chicken. Turn over when chicken changes color one-quarter of way up and seared side has turned paper-bag brown, 3-4 min. Reduce heat to MEDIUM; cook chicken 10-12 min, until internal temp reaches 160 degrees (check by inserting thermometer halfway into thickest part of chicken).
3. Add basting oil and butter to pan; swirl. Baste chicken with spoon, 1-3 min; until internal temp reaches 165 degrees. Transfer to a clean platter and slice into thin strips.
4. Add warm sauce to large bowl or pot with pasta and peas; gently toss to combine. Divide evenly on 4 plates; top with chicken. Sprinkle with shredded cheese; season with fresh cracked black pepper.
