Key Lime Chicken Breasts

Key Lime Chicken Breasts

chicken breasts
key lime to cover
1 tbs extra virgin olive oil
a clove of minced garlic
a few fresh torn basil leaves
salt and pepper.

Let marinate several hours or overnight if possible. Drain and either pan saute, grill, etc.

As you saute and the chicken breasts are almost done, add some of the drained reserved marinade and let cook and bubble in the pan over the breasts until hot and bubbly. All the flavors blend so nicely.

Note key lime juice is available in jars or may be available as fresh limes where you are and is more intense in flavor than the regular limes available in my opinion.
