Honey Lime Chicken

This recipe is delicious and healthy and quick, and chances are most people have these items around the kitchen so no special runs to the store (which I love)! I got it on another recipe blog called Internecipes. They have a lot of great recipes! Check it out {here}

2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut in half (I cut them in smaller peices)

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 cloves garlic, minced

3 tablespoons honey

juice of 2 limes

1 tablespoon soy sauce

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)

Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. When skillet is hot, add the chicken and cook about three minutes on one side, or until it is nicely browned. Turn chicken over and add garlic to the pan, lower heat to medium low. Combine honey, lime juice, soy sauce, salt, ginger, and cayenne and 2 tablespoons water in a bowl, stir, then scrape into the pan with chicken. Simmer for five minutes (or until chicken is cooked through). Remove chicken to plates and allow sauce to cook a little more to thicken slightly, stirring with a spoon to loosen bits of of chicken and brown bits stuck to the bottom of the pan. Spoon sauce over chicken. Serve with brown rice and a vegetable side. Sometimes I make double the sauce just because I want more. It's so good!!
