Easy and Delicious Lime & Butter Chicken

This summer has been a hot one so I thought a nice, quick but amazingly delicious way to cook chicken for dinner would help you out!  What are friends for?  This cooks up in just a few minutes so your kitchen doesn't heat up and you stay calm, cool and collected!  

Use as many pieces of chicken breast as you need.  Make sure they are not over about 1" thick.  If they are larger you can either cover them with plastic wrap and pound them with a meat mallet or cut them horizontally into 1 " thick pieces.


Now fry them in a small amount of vegetable oil until golden brown. As they cook season them with salt and pepper to taste.  Remove the pieces from the pan when the juices are clear.  Don't over cook.  Use a meat thermometer or make a small cut in the thickest part of each piece.  Watch the color of the meat.  The meat is done when it just turns from pink to white and the juices run clear.   Place them on a plate and cover to keep warm. 
  

Add 1 Tablespoon of real butter to pan for each piece of chicken and about 1 teaspoon of Lime juice for each piece of chicken.  Let the butter melt and combine with the lime juice.  Uncover cooked chicken and drizzle lime butter over the chicken.  Sprinkle with dill weed.  See?  Easy Peasy!
