Grilled Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken

My husband and I decided to have a surf and turf dinner this weekend so I picked a few recipes on Pinterest that looked like they’d fit well together and we ended up with a pretty awesome result. This chicken is so flavorful we can’t wait to have it again, but be aware that it has a bit of a kick to it. If you want to lessen the spice cut back on the cayenne pepper.  We served this with Honey Lime Shrimp and Grilled Pineapple.

Prep: 5 minutes

Cook: 15 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 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 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice

Directions:

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 the grill to medium high heat and cook the chicken for about 6 minutes on each side until done. When chicken is done sprinkle with 2 teaspoons garlic powder and lime juice.

(If you don’t feel like grilling heat 2 Tbsp butter and 1 Tbsp 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.)
