Made this for dinner last night, it was good!

Creamy Cilantro Lime Chicken

4 medium boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1/4 Cup finely chopped onion
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
1 Cup water or chicken broth
2 Tablespoons lime juice
2 Tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
salt & pepper to taste
1/2 Cup sour cream (or heavy cream or 1/2 & 1/2 or greek yogurt)

1. In a large heavy skillet, heat the oil over medium high heat. Season chicken generously with salt & pepper then add the chicken and cook 8-10 minutes, until chicken is cooked through. Remove chicken from skillet and cover with foil on a plate, set aside.
2. Add onions to the same skillet (do not clean out skillet) and cook 1-2 minutes until soft. Add garlic and cook for another minute. Add the water (or chicken broth), lime juice, cilantro, red pepper flakes and salt & pepper to taste. Bring to a gentle boil for 8-10 minutes or until liquid is reduced down about 1/4 cup.
3. Whisk in sour cream (or other choices mentioned above). Turn off heat and return chicken to the sauce. Serve with steamed rice.


Cilantro Lime Rice

3 Cups water
1 1/2 Cups rice (not instant)
2 Tablespoons lime juice
2 Tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

Cook rice according to rice cooker directions.
@NFC I made this recipe one day for lunch. We have been having our biggest meal for lunch.

I had to modify it for two people. I only used two chicken breasts, didn't have lime juice so I used lemon juice, used dried Cilantro, and I used plain rice.

We had enough left over for a second meal. I put the rice, chicken mixture, and added some frozen peas and topped it with dried cranberries and raspberries with walnut pieces(This is in the salad toppings area). It was like having a brand new recipe.

We really enjoyed your recipe. Yes I would make it again.

Thanks,

Karen

Hi all, been a bit since I checked in but you guys have been busy! I decided to make some brownies today since I didn't have time for bread and added a crunchy peanut butter swirl. They smell delicious!
They sound great IM...can't go wrong with chocolate brownies and peanut butter :drool

I used strawberries I froze this past summer, thawed and drained them. I did follow the recommendation and only made half the glaze and even that was a bit much.
The kids all enjoyed it but my oldest said it would have been good without the glaze.
