Garlic Lime Chicken

This is THE most amazing chicken recipe EVER!!!! Even if you don't think you would like something like this- I suggest that you try it- I think you will be pleasantly surprised! I used to get a menu mailed to me a couple of years ago and this is one of the recipes from that. I downloaded and printed them because they were so good! I hope you give it a try... I'm making it for dinner tomorrow night. I'll make brown rice to go with it. I know most people don't like brown rice, but we really enjoy the nutty flavour of it(if it's not overcooked!). Besides that, we eat it for the health benefits. wooee... that was a side-track! I'll also make a salad of baby greens and probably a cooked veggie as well. I think everyone will be happy with that!

Have a great weekend everyone!

take care.


tomorrow we tackle the pool full force!! YIPPEEE the kids are so excited... ha.. I think we all are!

Garlic Lime Chicken
Serves 6

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme
  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 4 tablespoons lime juice

In a bowl, mix together first 7 ingredients. Sprinkle mixture on both sides of chicken breasts.

In a skillet heat butter and olive oil together over medium high heat. Saute chicken until golden brown, about 5 minutes on each side. Turn down the heat, remove the chicken (keeping warm) and add the lime juice and chicken broth to the pan, whisking up the browned bits off the bottom of the skillet. Keep cooking until sauce has reduced slightly. Add chicken back to the pan to thoroughly coat and serve.


The Lord will guide you always; He will

satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land...

You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.
