I've been making this chicken for years! You can serve it with rice or pasta, have it in a sandwich with some mayo, or cut it into strips and wrap it in a flour tortilla. It is full of strong flavors and it's super good.


  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  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.
  2. Heat butter and olive oil in a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Saute chicken until golden brown, about 6 minutes on each side. Sprinkle with 2 teaspoons garlic powder and lime juice. Cook 5 minutes, stirring frequently to coat evenly with sauce.
Since we're using chicken breasts here, I usually slice them right down the middle so they're half the thickness. Otherwise it always takes too long to cook through, and they become dry. You could also pound them down to about a half inch. If you like an even stronger flavor, you could double the dry spices or add more cayenne to get a more substantial sauce.
