Recipe Remake - Spicy Chicken in a Garlic-Lime Broth

I created this dish a few years ago, and have made it a number of times, but haven't looked at the recipe recently. Well, when I finally went back to the recipe, I realized that I have made a lot of changes and have improved this dish. For that reason I am posting an update - new and improved Spicy Chicken in a Garlic-Lime Broth!


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, pounded out a bit (not completely thin)
  • Spices - cayenne pepper, chili powder, cumin, onion powder, garlic powder, salt
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 3 tbsp deglazing liquid: white wine or tequila, depending on what you have on hand
  • 1/2 c chicken broth
  • Juice from 1/2 of a lime
  • Handful of cilantro
  • Heat olive oil in a saute pan
  • Season chicken with the spices and add to the pan. Saute 4-5 min per side until cooked through. Remove from the pan.
  • Add a touch of olive oil to the pan then add the garlic. Saute 2 minutes.
  • Deglaze pan with the deglazing liquid, scraping up the brown bits
  • Add the chicken broth and lime juice, bring to a simmer.
  • Return chicken to the pan, add cilantro, spoon the sauce over the chicken, and let simmer just a few minutes.
  • Serve over rice or linguine.
