Garlic Lime Chicken

Nov 8, 2010

This recipe is from Saving Dinner by Leanne Ely. My family loves it! To save time, I quadruple the seasoning amounts and keep it in a spice jar. I serve it with Basmati rice that I make in my pressure cooker with chicken broth instead of water.

Garlic Lime Chicken
1 tsp sea salt
3/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp paprika
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp dried thyme (or cilantro)

6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, fresh or thawed (or 12-14 chicken tenders)
2 Tbl butter
2 Tbl olive oil
4 Tbl lime juice
1/2 c chicken broth

On a plate, mix seasonings. Sprinkle on both sides of chicken breasts. In a skillet, heat butter and olive oil over medium-high heat. Saute chicken until golden brown, about 5 minutes on each side or until cooked through. Remove chicken and add lime juice and broth to pan, whisking up browned bits off bottom of pan. Keep cooking until sauce has reduced slightly. Add chicken back to pan to thoroughly coat and serve.

  1. I love the seasoning mix - foodies knock garlic and onion powders but I feel they hold their own in the spice rack! It's a great way to add flavor without having burned bits of garlic mixed in with your food!

    Post some of your pressure cooker recipes, too!
