Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken

I received a link to this recipe through an e-newsletter from my former physical therapist, so I thought I'd give it a try tonight.
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
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
Well, because of a small snafu due to misreading the labels on the meat in the freezer, I made pork instead of chicken. I think it was quite good. Of course, Tom didn't try it - it was pork, it was spicy, it had garlic and onion flavoring, but regardless, it had a slight zing and freshness to it.
