Garlic lime Chicken

It must be all about limes week.  I am making garlic lime chicken and it smells wonderful.  This recipe was inspired by Leanne Ely from the Flylady network.  I absolutely love her way of thinking. 

 1 teaspoon sea salt
3/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon thyme
1 garlic clove, minced
 6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup low sodium chicken broth
4 tablespoons lime juice

On a dinner plate, mix together first 8 ingredients. Sprinkle mixture on both sides of chicken breasts (or double the spice mixture if you like it a little spicier).

In a skillet heat butter and olive oil together over medium high heat. Saute chicken until golden brown on each side, about 5 minutes on either side. 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.

I am serving this with baked garlic asparagus and also a salad.  I can't wait to eat tonight.  What is your go to meal during the week?
