In a nonstick skillet, bring the extra light olive oil to a sizzle over medium-high heat.

Remove the scaloppini and place on a waiting dish.

Dispose of the oil in the pan and add the extra virgin olive oil. Reduce heat to medium.

Add the onion and red pepper flakes. Stir well and cook for 2 minutes.

Add the garlic, stir, and cook 1 minute.

Add the red bell pepper, stir, and cook 1 minute

Add the mortadella, stir, and cook 2 minutes.

Increase heat to medium-high and add the chicken stock and whipping cream. Bring to a boil.

Add the chicken scaloppini to the pan, reduce heat to medium and cook 2 minutes to reheat the scaloppini throughout.

Remove the scaloppini and keep warm.
