Reviews for Chicken in Lime Butter
"This is a fast and easy recipe for a weeknight meal. I felt it was a little bland so I will add more lime and chives next time and maybe a spice blend to the chicken rather than just salt and pepper."
"Fast and easy recipe for chicken. It was good, but I couldn't taste the lime in the sauce. Next time I will add more."
"Delicious and super fast and easy! I served this with rice pilaf and green beans."
"This recipe is great and often asked for by my husband. The only change I make sometimes is that he prefers lemon over lime and I don't always include the chives since they aren't always something I keep on hand at home. Delicious and so easy to make."
"Delicious and easy! My favorite chicken recipe!"
"In the mood for 'crisp' so pounded the chicken, then dipped in Egg Beaters followed by panko crumbs with garlic & herb seasoning prior to cooking. My husband loves all things saucy, so added some white wine to the sauce ingredients to make it go further. A big hit!"
"I really like the flavor of this chicken."
"I have made this recipe several times. My Grandma, who is a real critic when it comes to food, really enjoys this dish whenever I prepare it for her."
"This is very delicious, quick and easy. I made it with chicken tenders, and used olive oil to cook the chicken. When making the lime butter, I used only a couple tablespoons of butter. I think 1 Tblsp. might even be enough. I didn't notice how small the amount of chives was and had already cut a handful of chives from my garden, so used them all. It didn't seem to hurt the recipe any to greatly increase the chives!"
