boneless, skinless chicken breasts
salt and pepper to taste
dried dill weed
I have had this recipe for years, but have modified it slightly in much the same way as other reviewers. I cut the chicken breasts into smaller pieces, use half a stick of butter, use about a tablespoon of fresh dill and some chopped fresh chives or scallions, and I add just a little flour to thicken the sauce. This goes great with Uncle Ben's original wild rice and corn. I love this because it is so easy to make that I can prep and cook while still keeping an eye on the kids!
This was a good, very quick, basic dish...but I did change it up a little. I cooked 2 chicken breasts as instructed and when I went to make the sauce, I added 2 cloves of garlic which worked really well with the lime. I also added the zest of about half the lime. It's important to note that while I only used 2 chicken breasts, I made the full amount of sauce, and it was perfect. As suggested by other reviewers, I did not use a 1/2 cup of butter but rather about 3-4 tbsp. The lime zest was not necessary as DH and I found that the lime flavour was just too intense and the lime juice is quite enough. A good recipe, but I would definitely add the garlic!
This dish was yummy but the 1st time I made it, I thought there was way too much butter in it. The butter almost overpowered the lime flavor. Next time I used only half the amount called for and it was just as good or better. This sauce is also really good on cooked carrots.
I used less butter, more lime juice and it still worked great! Yummy!
Yum! We loved this! I did change it a bit - cut the chicken breast halves into quarters, cooked them in just a little butter in a nonstick skillet (no vegetable oil). Used 3 tbsp butter for the sauce, not half a cup, and used ground ginger instead of dill weed. Served with rice and fresh asparagus. The chicken was moist and the sauce was perfect! I'll definitely make this again.
Wow. I'm a pretty novice cook and a snobby foodie, I've *never* been able to successfully cook chicken. With this recipe's simple directions, the chicken came out tender and juicy. After cooking I put the chicken on a plate and put it in the microwave to keep warm.
I used the juice of 1 small-ish lemon and about 3-4 pats of butter for 3 chicken breasts. I loved the tartness, but I'm not partial to dill so I may substitue with something else (someone's suggestion of cilantro sounds delicious!)
My family thought this was great. I used less butter that suggested, and it was still good.
Easy & well-liked by my husband (a huge plus!), I did make a few changes. I used one huge chicken breast & split it for us to share. Used the same amount of ingredients for the sauce EXCEPT for the butter. Yikes, a half cup of butter??!!!! I used MAYBE 2 tablespoons. Also to the lime juice I added two garlic cloves, 1/2 of a serrano chili pepper and maybe 1 tsp of shallots. Instead of the dill (not a fav of my husband), I used fresh basil. I will DEFINITELY repeat this one!
