This was a big hit with my son and other family members. Also works very well on sauteed shrimp and fish and the frozen breaded Clam Strips.

I throw frozen Chicken Breast in the frying pan on medium heat for this one. They turn out just as well as if thawed. This is a great pairing.

How to Make Lime Cilantro Sauteed Chicken Breast

Step-by-Step

  1. Over medium heat place Chicken Breast un-thawed or thawed in frying pan to which you fave added a pat of butter and a teaspoon of olive oil. When first side has cooked somewhat, flip to other side. Continue flipping every 3 or 4 minutes. Cook 7 to 10 minutes.
  2. When breast appears 2/3 to 3/4 done add 1/4 stick butter and 2 tablespoons of olive oil and the Lime Juice and Cilantro, to the pan. (Garlic is Optional)
  3. I test that they are cooked through by slicing a little and checking.
  4. Plate the Chicken Breasts and spoon on some of the sauce. Serve with rice, potatoes or your choice. Again -- This works very well for Shrimp, Fish, Breaded Clam sticks or other Sea Food. Margarita Anyone?
  5. Hint: I sometimes prepare the sauce separately by heating in the microwave. You'll need some salt to bring out the lime juice and cilantro. I add some sauce to pan and reserve some for plating. It's What's for Supper? Really.
