Chicken in Lime Butter
(Recipe from Taste of Home)
I promised to post some of the recipes I've been trying lately (or old ones that I use a lot but haven't posted before). This is a new one I recently tried: Chicken in Lime Butter. I had some chicken tenders and was looking for a good and easy way to prepare them that might be a bit different. This was easy and very flavorful. I changed just a couple of things. I used olive oil to cook the chicken in, and I used only about half the butter called for in the recipe -- that is, I used 2 Tblsp. as opposed to 1/4 cup. Also, I used fresh chives from the garden. I had cut a handful of them not realizing that the recipe called for 1/4 teaspoon! I used them all and it still came out very good. Life has been so busy and hectic lately that I can't even remember what I served with this, but I think it was leftover yellow rice and some steamed Swiss chard.
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
