Garlic Lime Chicken

My SO's mother sent me this recipe a few days ago, and I made this night before last. My SO and I loved it!!! I didn't have any lime juice on hand, so I substituted with some lemon juice, and it turned out wonderful. I served it over brown rice, with broccoli on the side.

Some people find that the seasoning is not enough for the reccommended 6 breasts, so you may want to double or triple the amounts. I made two chicken breasts, and the seasoning was the perfect amount to cover both pieces.

I think I am going to be making this again veeeery soon!! My mouth is watering just thinking about it.

Garlic Lime Chicken
Serves 6

3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (can be omitted)
1/8 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon thyme
1/4 teaspoon dried parsley
6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoons garlic powder
3 tablespoons lime juice

In a small bowl, mix together all seasonings, except the last
measurement of garlic powder and lime juice.

Dredge chicken breasts in seasoning mix on both sides.

Heat butter and oil in a large skillet over medium heat and saute
chicken until golden brown, about six minutes on each side. Sprinkle
with remaining garlic powder and lime juice and cook 5 minutes
stirring frequently to coat evenly with the sauce. Serve.
