You will get all the flavors of the Mediterranean in this dish featuring pan-seared chicken breasts in a sauce made with sun-dried tomatoes, chicken stock, garlic and lemon.
Grate the zest and squeeze the juice from the lemon. Stir the stock, tomatoes, lemon juice and lemon zest in a small bowl.
Season the chicken with salt and black pepper.
Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook for 6 minutes or until well browned on both sides. Remove the chicken from the skillet.
Reduce the heat to medium. Heat the remaining oil in the skillet. Add the shallots and garlic and cook and stir for 1 minute.
Add the stock mixture to the skillet and heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cook for 4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Return the chicken to the skillet. Cover and cook for 5 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. Sprinkle with the olives, capers, basil and cheese. Serve with the couscous.

Pan-Seared Mediterranean Chicken
Great sauce. Lots of flavor. I would salt the chicken before cooking. It's a good sauce and you can add to anything.
