This is almost identical to a recipe that I love. The only difference is that in my recipe you add 1/3 of a cup of chicken broth with the lemon juice to the pan drippings. This helps to add the needed liquid for the sauce. This is a fast, delicious recipe that the whole family likes.

My wife loved this take on a delicious dish. Mince onion, garlic and jalepeno, add the dry ingredients called for in this dish to form a wet paste. Rub generous amounts under the skin. Outer skin is salted, rubbed with some mixture. Broil in oven until skin gets nice and crispy (5-7 min) switch oven to bake 350 until done (approx 40 min). About half way through squeeze lime juice on chicken.

I will make this easy recipe again but with some changes. I loved the spice mixture but it wasn't enough to adequately cover/rub four breasts so I had make another batch. Also, way, way, WAY too much garlic powder at the end. It overpowered the other flavors, especially the lime. I will reduce the amount of garlic powder and double the other ingredients in the future.
