Lemon Chicken with Olives

30 mintutes / Serves 4 / recipe from Real Simple

2 Tbs flour
1/2 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp lemon zest, plus 1Tbs lemon juice
1 1/2 lbs chicken cutlets
2 Tbs olive oil
2 shallots, thinly sliced
1 cup pitted green olives (I like the mixed olives)
1/2 cup dry white wine

Mix flour, cumin, zest, salt & pepper on a plate. Pat the chicken dry and dredge in flour mixture. Heat 1 Tbs olive oil in large skillet over med-high heat. Cook the chicken in 2 batches until brown. Transfer to a plate. Wipe out the skillet and return to med heat. Heat the remaining oil and cook shallots until soft. Stir in olives, lemon juice and wine and bring to a boil. Return chicken to pan, reduce heat and cook (covered) about 5 mintues. Divide among plates spooning olives, shallots and sauce over top. Serve with brown rice.
