Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken

So on the way to the gym, Laura and I placed bets on whether or not Jen and Marion would actually decide on what to have for dinner tonight. Annnnd, of course, after working out hard for 40+ minutes, we find out that they were still at the "what do you want?" stage. So, I decided to make Drewie's Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken since I knew we had all the seasonings on hand.

It actually turned out pretty good, although I regret throwing a little extra lime juice on it to add some liquid for the chicken to cook in.

Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken

3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
4 (4 ounce) boneless, skinless chicken breast halves

2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoons garlic powder
3 tablespoons lime juice

In a small bowl, mix together salt and next 7 ingredients (through parsley). Sprinkle spice mixture generously on both sides of chicken breasts.

Heat butter and 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.
