1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

On a plate, combine the flour, lemon zest, cumin and 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Coat the chicken with the flour mixture tapping off any excess.
Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. In 2 batches, cook the chicken until golden, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to plate.
Wipe out skillet heat the remaining oil over medium heat. Add the shallots and cook until soft, 5 to 7min. Add the olives, parsley, wine, and lemon juice and bring to a boil.
Nestle the chicken in the vegetables. Simmer, covered until the chicken is cooked through, 4 to 6 minutes.
