Another “partial” make-ahead dinner. This one is so easy and so yummy and perfect with a side of rice. I used to make a big batch of this chicken to take camping with us when it was my turn to serve dinner to the crowd. Just reheat and eat!
Garlic Lime Chicken
1 t salt
1 t pepper
¼ t cayenne pepper
¼ t paprika
1 t garlic powder
½ t onion powder
½ t thyme
6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 T butter
2 T olive oil
4 T lime juice
½ c chicken broth
- Mix together the first 7 ingredients. Sprinkle lightly on both sides of the chicken breasts (or heavily on one side!).
- Heat the butter and olive oil in a skillet. Sauté the chicken until cooked. Option 1: When chicken is mostly cooked, add the lime and finish cooking. Serve. Option 2: Remove chicken once cooked and add the lime and chicken broth to the pan drippings. Heat thoroughly then pour mixture over chicken before serving.
Triple the first 7 ingredients and save for future use!
Use Option 1 if eating the same night.
Use Option 2 if you are making in advance to allow the chicken to ‘marinate’ in the lime juice.
