Garlic-Lime Chicken

I think chicken is the healthiest lean protein to eat (aside from fish �) and one of the cheapest to get all natural, free range, or organic. So let�s pass up the ground chuck for some beautiful, pink, glistening chicken breasts; and, you know cook �em up in a tasty way.

This is where I run into problems. I�m so bored with my chicken recipes and I�m always on the hunt for new ones that don�t take a lot of time or fancy ingredients.

Here�s one that�s great. All the ingredients you probably already have, and it takes no time at all and barely any effort. Crack open a Corona with these.

Garlic-Lime Chicken

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
  • 1/8 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/8 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder


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.
