Julie's Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken

I don't have any pictures of this recipe, but it's so good I wanted to share. I've heard all sorts of rave reviews about Julie's Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken but have never tried it. The other day I finally decided to give it a try. The chicken was moist and very flavorful. It was excellent paired with some of her fabulous No-Fail Mexican Rice and corn and black beans seasoned with cumin, paprika, and cilantro. It was also delicious in a salad for lunch the next day. I have a feeling this will become a staple in our house!

Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken

3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/8 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon dried parsley
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoons garlic powder
3 tablespoons lime juice


In a small bowl, mix together salt, black pepper, cayenne, paprika, 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, onion powder, thyme and parsley. Sprinkle spice mixture generously on both sides of chicken breasts. Note from Julie: she usually use a little less salt, and doubles the rest of the spices so there is plenty to coat the chicken

Heat butter and olive oil in a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Saute chicken until golden brown, about 6 minutes on each side. Sprinkle with 2 teaspoons garlic powder and lime juice. Cook 5 minutes, stirring frequently to coat evenly with sauce.

PS: Julie and I teamed up tonight and decorated some very unique cookies . Stay tuned for a post about that on Sunday.
