Garlic Lime Chicken

This is a tasty, easy chicken dish from Saving Dinner. My daughter loves it (always a plus).

1 t. salt
3/4 t. pepper
1/4 t. cayenne pepper
1/4 t. paprika
1 t. garlic powder
1/2 t. onion powder
1/2 t. thyme
6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
2 T. butter
2 T. olive oil
4 T. lime juice
1/2 c. chicken broth

On a dinner plate, mix first 7 ingredients. Sprinkle mixture on both sides of chicken breasts. In a skillet, heat butter and olive oil together over medium-high heat. Saute chicken until golden brown, about 5 minutes on each side (more if you're using chicken breasts on steroids). Remove chicken and add lime juice and chicken broth to the pan, whisking up the browned bits off the bottom of the pan. Keep cooking until sauce has reduced slightly. Add chicken back to the pan to thoroughly coat and serve.

Serves 6
