Recipe #2 - Chicken with Lime Sauce
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, season with salt and pepper to taste.
Add 2 tsp. olive oil to a skillet and brown chicken on both sides (not cooked all the way through)
Remove from pan, keep warm.
In the pan add:
3/4 C chicken broth
1 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp lime juice (FRESH - I don't know what bottled will do the the finished product)
2 tsp. mustard
scrape up the bits on the bottom and simmer for a few minutes.
mix in a small bowl, 2 tbsp water and 2 tsp. cornstarch. Add to skillet.
Bring to a boil and reduce to simmer (BTBRTS)
Finish with 1 tbsp butter and 1 more tbsp lime juice. add chicken back into the pan until cooked through. The sauce would be great on rice. I served this with a green salad and garlic roasted red potatoes.
Verdict: The sauce is strong. The chicken was really good, but I wish I had served it on a bed of rice instead of with potatoes. My kids ate it dipped in ketchup.
