Spicy Chicken

Looking for a really quick, tasty recipe?  Look no further.  :)  Ha!  I sound like an infomercial.  This is about a 15 minute dinner - prep and cook time.  I just chose spices I had and I really liked the combination.  This is great recipe to fix on a busy day or when you  just don't feel like being in the kitchen all night.

Spicy Chicken
2 large chicken breasts, cut in half
2 t. garlic powder
1 t. chipotle chili powder
1/4 t. salt
1/4 t. paprika
2 t. lime juice
Combine garlic powder, chili powder, salt, paprika in small bowl.  Rub mixture on chicken breasts.  Heat small amount of olive oil (just enough to coat pan) in large skillet over medium-medium high heat.  Brown chicken on both sides.  Drizzle lime juice over chicken.  Cover and cook about 5 minutes or until chicken juices run clear.


  1. It was great to see you on Saturday, Marlena! Hey, do you always use fresh lime juice in your recipes?

  2. Thanks for inviting me Mianna! :) Yes, I always use fresh lime juice. I like it better. But I am sure bottled lime juice would work just fine.
