Garlic Lime Chicken

serves 6

1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp paprika
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 teaspoon thyme
6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (I used 4 breasts)
2 Tblsp butter
2 Tblsp olive oil
1/2 cup chicken broth
4 Tblsp lime juice

In a bowl, mix together the first 7 ingredients. Sprinkle mixture on both sides of chicken breasts.
In a skillet heat butter and olive oil together over medium heat. Saute chicken until golden brown, about 5 minutes on each side.
Turn down the heat, remove the chicken (keeping warm) and add the lime juice and chicken broth to the pan, whisking up the browned bits off the bottom of the skillet. Keep cooking until sauce has reduced slightly. Add chicken back to the pan to throughly coat and serve.

I served with loaded baked potatoes, mixed veggies, and cheesy bread. YUM!

I got this recipe from my Aunt Julianne.
