GARLIC LIME CHICKEN


~ Saving Dinner

1/8 t. cayenne
1/8 t. paprika
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. pepper
1/2 t. onion powder
1/2 t. thyme
1 t. garlic powder
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 1/2 T. butter
1 1/2 T. olive oil
3 T. lime juice
1/3 c. chicken broth

Mix first seven ingredients together, then sprinkle on both sides of chicken breasts.

In a skillet over medium-high heat,  heat butter and olive oil together. Saute chicken in oil and butter until golden brown, about five minutes per side. Remove from skillet and keep warm.

Add lime juice and broth to skillet, stirring in any browned bits stuck to the bottom of skillet. Cook until slightly reduced, then return chicken to skillet and coat with sauce before serving.

Notes: We sprinkle half of the seasoning blend on one side of the chicken breasts, whichever side will go down in the skillet first, then sprinkle the second half on the other side right before flipping the breasts over.
