Garlic Lime Chicken

Today, was another hot day in Texas.  89˚ at 7:30 PM.  I so hope that this summer isn't unbearable like it was last year.  We cannot handle another summer like that.

I decided to try something new today for dinner.

Garlic Lime Chicken


1 cup flour
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tsp Adobo seasoning
6 boneless, skinless chicken breast cut into strips
2 T butter
2 T olive oil
1 head of garlic, chopped
green onions
lemon pepper to taste


Mix flour, salt, pepper and Adobo in resealable plastic bag. Place chicken strips in and shake to coat.  Set aside

Melt butter in large pan then add the EVOO; I don't actually measure my olive oil; I'm more of a drizzler. Heat until oil glistens.  Add garlic and onion; saute until golden.  Saute chicken for about 10-15 minutes or until juices run clear.

I place the chicken in the oven at 325˚ on a foil-lined cookie sheet between batches.  

Squeeze lime over chicken and sprinkle with lemon pepper. Garnish with cilantro.

I served it with mashed potatoes and sauteed squash.  It was good.
