Garlic Lime Chicken

My mom made this recipe for us when she was visiting back in February and it's one of our new favorites. The chicken comes out flavorful and tender. My mom left a supply of the spice mixture for me in my pantry, making it a great week night meal with half the prep work already done!

Garlic Lime Chicken

Mix together the following ingredients:
1 teaspoons salt
3/4 teaspoons pepper
1/4 teaspoons cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoons paprika
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 teaspoons onion powder
1/2 teaspoons thyme

Additional Ingredients:
6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (I use fewer and then save the rest of the seasoning)
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 tablespoons lime juice
1/2 cup chicken broth

Sprinkle this mixture over boneless, skinless chicken breast halves.
In a skillet heat 2 tablespoons butter and 2 tablespoons olive oil together on medium-high heat. Saute chicken for about 5 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Remove the chicken and add 4 tablespoons lime juice and 1/2 cup chicken broth to the pan, stirring in with the browned bits on the bottom of the pan. Add chicken back to pan and continue cooking until internal temperature of chicken reaches 165- about 15 to 20 minutes.

I just tried this recipe tonight and after taking his first bite, Ryan replied, "Mmmm, very good hunny." And upon taking his second: "Really, really good." This is definitely a keeper--and super easy to make! Thanks for sharing Jen.
