Chicken With Lime Sauce

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Cluich

A simple but elegant chicken dish, this goes well with rice and fresh steamed green beans. Garnish with fresh parsley and a slice of lime for that extra green color.

I enjoyed this. It was simple to make and had good, although not overpowering, lime flavor. I didn't use fresh lime, but I think that would've made it taste 'cleaner'. I did have an issue with the sauce being too thin for my liking, but I didn't quite have enough cornstarch and had to sub in flour so that may have been the cause.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pound the chicken so that all pieces are of about the same thickness, then season with salt, to taste. Melt the butter in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the chicken and brown for about 3 minutes on each side. Remove from the frying pan and keep warm.
  2. Mix all other ingredients and pour the mixture into the frying pan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly to prevent clumping, and boil for about a minute.
  3. Return the chicken to the pan and simmer until the chicken is cooked through (about five minuites or so). Serve hot, with the sauce poured over the the chicken.
