Picture and Recipe from Amber’s Delectable Delights

This was really yummy! I marinated the chicken overnight and it tasted great. My one complaint along with Greg and Ry’s was that it was a little too peppery, but that was my fault, I accidentally put way too much cayenne pepper into the mix because I forgot how big the holes are … oopsies. I also didn’t have any garlic power so I used a garlic and herb spice that I had and it worked out just fine.

Spicy Garlic Lime Pasta

Ingredients:
1 cup chicken broth
1.5 tbls lime juice
1 tsp corn starch
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp dried thyme
1/4 tsp dried parsley
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 tbls butter
Few drizzles of olive oil
8 oz pasta (I used whole wheat rotini)
1-2 cups broccoli florets
Optional – Parmesan cheese for topping

Directions:
1) Mix all marinade ingredients (chicken broth through parsley) together in bowl or ziplock bag. Cut chicken into bite size pieces and toss into the marinade. Let chicken marinate in fridge a minimum of one hour.
2) Bring pot of salted water to a boil. Cook pasta according to package directions. During the last 5 minutes of pasta cook time add the broccoli into the boiling water. Drain.
3) Meanwhile, heat butter and olive oil in saucepan over medium heat. Remove chicken pieces from marinade (setting marinade to the side) and place in heated pan. Cook chicken until no longer pink. Pour the marinade into the pan with the chicken and bring to a simmer. Let simmer until thickened.
4) Toss cooked broccoli and pasta with the chicken and sauce. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese if desired and serve.
