If you watch the video and read the recipe, you'll start recognizing some of the problems with this recipe. First, there is way too little seasoning for the amount of raw, unmarinated chicken. Second, you have to be very careful with garlic powder--if your pan is even slightly too hot, you'll burn it and the whole dish is lost. Notice how the video barely sprinkles the garlic powder on the chicken itself? The initial mix uses 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder--and then uses 2 teaspoons while your sauteing the chicken?!? Makes no sense to me. As others have suggested, you are better off with real garlic, especially when you saute. Also note that the narrator says to pour the lime juice over the chicken, even though the video pours it around the chicken and onto the pot, never on the chicken. Also, taste your lime juice first--not all limes are equal or ripe. If it doesn't taste like lime, all it will be is bitter; and along with garlic powder, it'll taste like you've burned the chicken. Lime juice should be used to a) marinate the chicken ahead of time and b) sprinkled before serving. Otherwise, the lime flavor will "flash" off in the cooking, and all you'll have left is the bitterness of lime.
