Lemon Chicken with Green Olives

Simple and delicious!  I love the saltiness of the olives combined with the sweetness of the onion.  Such a great dish!  I served mine with white rice.  Enjoy!
Ingredients:
-2 Tbs flour
-1/2 tsp ground cumin
-1/2 tsp salt
-1/2 tsp pepper
-2 chicken breasts, skinless, boneless, cut into smaller pieces
-2 Tbs extra virgin olive oil
-1 small red onion, thinly sliced
-1 Tbs lemon juice
-1/2 cup apple juice
-1 cup pitted green olives (with pimientos is fine), cut in half
-1 Tbs dried parsley leaves
Directions:
In a shallow bowl mix flour, cumin, salt and pepper.  Dredge the chicken through it, shaking off the excess. 
Heat the oil in large skillet.  Add breaded chicken and cook until golden brown on both sides (doesn't have to be cooked through at this point).  Remove chicken from heat.
Return skillet to stove and add onion.  Cook for a couple of minutes, scraping off the chicken bits left (this is super flavor :)  Add lemon juice, apple juice, olives and parsley.  Cook for about a minute.  Add chicken with any juices.  Cover and cook for about 6 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through.  Serve over hot rice.  Enjoy!
