Chicken with Lime Sauce

1 Comment

Have you ever thought that fish and birds are alike?
Fish travel in schools above their landscape, bird fly in flocks above their landscape. If you see a school of fish, they move in much the same way a flock of birds does. Following on from that, they are both good to eat…. Just saying….

Chicken with Lime Sauce
Serves 4

4 skinless, boneless chicken thighs
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 teaspoons olive oil
Cooking spray
3/4 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
1 tablespoon brown sugar
3 tablespoons lime juice, divided
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon butter

Chop chicken into small pieces and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat.
Add chicken, cook until browned. Remove from pan and keep warm.
Add chicken broth, sugar, 2 tablespoons juice, and mustard to pan and cook over medium heat, scraping pan to loosen browned bits.
Combine water and cornstarch in a small bowl. Add cornstarch mixture to pan, stir well with a whisk. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, cook 1 minute or until sauce thickens slightly. Whisk in remaining 1 tablespoon lime juice and butter, stirring until butter melts. Return chicken to pan and simmer 2 minutes or until chicken is thoroughly heated.

40, on my way to 40 something...Still not sure what I want to do when I grow up, retire probably... Food obsessed, love to cook it, read about it, eat it... Chock full of useless information that crowds out the useful stuff sometimes.
