Garlic Lime Chicken
« on: January 29, 2012, 12:18:11 PM »
Mix spice mixture:

1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp paprika
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp thyme

Using boneless, skinless chicken breast, prepare as you prefer. To make this a quick meal, I typically take partially thawed chicken breasts and slice about 1/2" thick. Sprinkle both sides of the chicken with the spice mixture. cook in Skillet with 2 T. olive oil (or coconut oil) and 1 T. butter until cooked through.

Remove chicken from pan, keeping warm with a lid or foil. In the pan, pour 1/2 c. chicken broth (I often use bouillon or soup base) and 4 T. lime juice (I have been using frozen lemon juice cubes with good success). Cook down until the volume is reduced to a nice thin sauce consistency. Add the chicken back to the skillet and heat through.

Serve with rice and veges. Serve the remaining sauce on the side.  YUMMY.

The original recipe called for using 6 boneless chicken breast halves and no additional slicing -- works fine, just takes longer to cook the chicken through.

I've also made this ahead for a boy scout campout as follows:

Slice chicken as desired, sprinkle with spices, dump into ziplock bag and refrigerate until ready to cook.

We've omitted the sauce and it is still great... This is really a very versatile recipe. I keep a jar of the spice mix on hand all the time for quick meals... just increase ingredients as follows:

Spice Mixture:

4 tsp. salt
4 tsp pepper
1 tsp cayenne
1 tsp paprika
4 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp onion powder
2 tsp thyme

I made this last night and it was a hit.  ;D

A man is master at home;
A pair of goats | and a patched-up roof
Are better far than begging."
