Seasoned chicken breasts, sauteed with butter and garlic and topped with a squeeze of fresh lime. This is the best chicken I've ever had! My husband doesn't like that many things, but he loved this recipe, you just have to try it!

Delicious! I only used 1T butter because of the cholesterol. The rest was olive oil. Didn't know if I was supposed to really use 2 'heads' of garlic, which seemed like a bit much, or 2 'cloves' so I used 5 cloves and we thought it was just right. Didn't have lemon pepper so I used 1/2 lemon and fresh ground pepper. Used Turkey breast strips. It was eaten up so quickly I'm surprised someone didn't get a fork in their hand! I know everyone will be wanting this again and soon. Thanks! It was so easy!

Very good, not to mention quick and easy. I didn't even bother flouring the chicken, I just cooked it in the butter, garlic and lime juice. I do recommend cutting the chicken into strips, though, so that all the chicken absorbs the flavors. I also put some of the sauce on top of steamed broccoli - excellent. My husband loved it.

This chicken recipe is wonderful!!! The leftover juices in the pan work wonderfully over rice. And if I can make it, you know it's easy to prepare!
