Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken


As you can tell from our blog, Kelly and I are a little bit lop sided on chicken recipes.  Here is another one.

Ingredients

1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/8 teaspoon paprika
3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 cup lime juice

4 boneless chicken breasts

2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon garlic minced
1 teaspoon lime zest
1 tablespoon lime juice

In a small bowl, combine ingredients from kosher salt --> lime juice
Place chicken breasts in a plastic bag and pour mixture from bowl into the bag.  Ensure all chicken is well coated and place plastic bag in a bowl in the fridge for 1 - 4 hours.

Heat butter and olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.  Add minced garlic and saut√©
 for 2 minutes.  Next add chicken and cook until golden brown (about 6 minutes each side).  Sprinkle with lime zest and lime juice right before serving.  

You can serve over rice, pasta, or fresh spinach.
