Spicy Chicken Recipe

Here is a high protein recipe I hope ya’ll enjoy. It’s pretty easy to make and it will ensure your body is burning fat at night instead of taking a high carbohydrate meal and storing it. I’ve had at least a dozen people tell me they loved the taste.

It’s a little too spicy for my taste, but I think many of you will really like¬† it.

Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken (serves four)

This is a a little more spicy than I like, but I believe a lot of you will enjoy it.

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
  • 2tbsp butter (yes…I said butter, but its small)
  • 1tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/8 tsp paprika
  • 1/8 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/4 tsp dried parsley
  • 2 tsps garlic powder
  • 3 tbsps lime juice

1. In a small bowl mix together, salt, black pepper, cayenne, paprika, 1/4 tsp garlic powder, onion powder, thyme and parsley. Sprinkle spice mixture generously on both sides of chicken.
