Garlic Lime Chicken

If you've ever eaten Cajun barbequed shrimp, then you'll know what this tastes like. Its spice mix is very similar to a cajun seasoning, and then its cooked with a lot of lime. I really enjoyed this recipe!

As per usual, I didn't use a full 6 breast halves, and I cut the breasts into strips. We just don't eat one whole huge breast per person in this family. That's a lot of meat!

I also forgot to add the paprika. Am I ever going to make a recipe in which I don't forget something?!

Of course I used fresh garlic instead of powdered, but I'm sure you knew that already.

Garlic Lime Chicken

1 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon garlic powder (or a couple cloves of fresh, minced)
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon thyme
6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 tablespoons lime juice
1/2 cup chicken broth

Hmm...lemme see, I think I cooked the chicken breasts in the spices and oil and butter, and then added the lime juice and chicken broth near the end. When the chicken was done, I took it out of the pan and boiled the broth and the juice for a while until it reduced a bit.

Garnish with parsley if desired, and then eat!
