Chicken Cutlets With Green Olive And Currant Pan Sauce

admin's picture
  Extra virgin olive oil 2 Tablespoon
  Chicken cutlet 8 (1/3 Inch Thick)
  Ground pepper To Taste
  Kosher salt To Taste
  Shallot 1 Small, minced
  Chicken stock/Low sodium broth 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)
  Dijon mustard 1 Teaspoon
  Pitted green picholine olives 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs), halved lengthwise
  Dried currants 2 1⁄2 Tablespoon
  Canned capers 2 Tablespoon, drained
  Unsalted butter 1 Tablespoon (Cold)

1. In a very large skillet, heat the oil until shimmering. Lightly season the chicken cutlets with salt and pepper. Add half of the cutlets to the skillet and cook over high heat, turning once, until lightly browned outside and white throughout, about 4 minutes. Transfer the cutlets to a plate. Repeat with the remaining cutlets.
2. Add the minced shallot to the skillet and cook over moderate heat until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the chicken stock and cook for 30 seconds, scraping up the browned bits. Whisk in the mustard and simmer until the stock has reduced by half, about 3 minutes. Add the olives, currants and capers and simmer over moderately low heat for 1 minute. Return the chicken and any accumulated juices to the skillet and simmer just until warmed through, about 1 minute.
3. Transfer the chicken to plates. Off the heat, whisk the butter into the sauce until incorporated. Spoon the olive-currant sauce over the chicken cutlets and serve at once.
