Yummy Garlic Lime Chicken

In need of an easy dinner? You’ll love this recipe. It’s so easy and delicious! And . . . just change the side dish and it works for either a low carb day or a high carb day!

Tip: (Save time! Mix up a whole bunch of seasoning at once to have on hand!  You’ll need about ½ Tbsp per recipe.)

Garlic Lime Chicken – Serves 2

2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
2 teaspoons butter
2 teaspoons olive oil
2 tablespoons low sodium chicken broth
1 ½ tablespoons lime juice

SEASONING
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
Pinch of cayenne pepper
Pinch of paprika
½ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon onion powder
¼ teaspoon thyme

  1. Mix seasonings together in large zip-top baggie. Add chicken breasts to the bag, seal, and smoosh around until all chicken is well coated with seasoning.
  2. Add butter and olive oil to pan and melt.
  3. Add chicken and cook on both sides until done. Remove from pan and keep warm.
  4. To skillet, add lime juice and broth. Using a whisk, mix the liquids and browned bits off pan bottom and sides. Continue cooking until sauce has reduced slightly.
  5. Add chicken back to the pan, coating with the sauce. Then serve.

On a low carb day, serve with your favorite veggies like asparagus or broccoli and a green salad.

On a high carb day, sweet potatoes make a great side dish or diced potatoes. (I added just a touch of cheese for our guilt free day!)

Enjoy!
