In a bowl, mix together first 7 ingredients. Sprinkle mixture on both sides of chicken breasts.
In a skillet heat butter and olive oil together over medium high heat. Saute chicken until golden brown, about 5 minutes on each side.

  10. This looks really exceptional. I love the garlic and lime combination that you have used here. Your photo is terrific. I hope you are having a great day.

  11. Julie, Thanks for stopping by my Foodie Friday post today! YOUR Chicken dish looks divine! Guess what, I STAYED in Mt. Pleasant while in the Charleston Area last week, yes, I did! :) We stayed at the Holiday Inn, and we found Mt. Pleasant to be very nice. We actually went to an auction while there early Saturday morning and bought this GORGEOUS antique little (real people) chair that is vintage for our granddaughter. It mimicks a life size chair in design and the way it's upholstered and we got it for only $40 plus tax. We also visited the Antique Mall while there, the one that is beside the adorable baby furniture store. We dined at Wendy's for lunch one day... Such a small world! That was all we got to enjoy while in the area....we spent much of our time in the Historic section of Downtown Charleston walking and enjoying the sites! We want to go to the Boone Plantation on our next trip there....the trip was really brief, only two days in that, we pretty much just shopped and walked to take it all in. Thanks for dropping by Julie! :)

  12. Beautiful photo, it makes the recipe more valuable to me to know that it can me appetizing in appearance, a fact so many books and blogs still overlook... Be well, Julie

  13. Oh, and I forgot, we are buying a home in Charleston - keep in touch!

  14. It looks so delicious:)
