Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken


3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/8 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon dried parsley
1 teaspoon flour
2 teaspoons garlic powder
3 tablespoons lime juice
2 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
1 tablespoon olive oil
5 mushrooms, sliced

broccoli florets
Parmesan cheese

In a baking dish, mix together all ingredients from salt thru to lime juice. Cut chicken into bite size pieces and marinate in mixture for at least an hour in the refrigerator. Heat olive oil in a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Add chicken,marinade, and mushrooms and cook about 10 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink. Cook the pasta, adding broccoli just long enough to cook. If using frozen broccoli, add 2 minutes before pasta is ready. If using fresh broccoli, add about 8 minutes before pasta is ready. Drain pasta and broccoli, top with chicken, marinade, and Parmesan cheese.

***This was good. D loved it and I liked it. Personally, I thought it could have used even more spices. Not hot spicy, but actual spices. We made it very hot by adding LOTS of cayenne pepper. I added mushrooms which really absorbed all the flavors.
