Awhile Ago

My middle daughter just noted that it had been awhile since I had last posted here and was kind enough to give me a recipe...but since it's stuck in the "comments" from a post last year...I'm copying and posting it right here.

Lime Chicken Breast Picante
1-1/2 cup fresh mild salsa
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
4 tbsp. fresh lime juice
1 tsp. dried dill 4,
4 oz. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 tbsp. olive oil
4 tbsp. nonfat sour cream
1 lime, sliced into wedges

1. in a large bowl combine salsa, mustard, lime juice and dill. Mix thoroughly and transfer this salsa mixture into a 2-cup measuring cup. Place the chicken breasts into the large bowl and pour 3/4 cup of the mixture over chicken leaving 3/4 of a cup of the salsa mixture. Cover bowl and refrigerate chicken for one to two hours to marinate.
2. in a large skillet heat olive oil over medium heat. Add chicken breast; discard marinade and sauté on each side for 5 minutes until brown. Add remaining 3/4 cup of salsa mixture to skillet, cover and let cook another 8 minutes or until chicken meat is white throughout.
3. Remove chicken breasts to a serving plate and spoon mixture from skillet over chicken. Top each breast with a tablespoon of nonfat sour cream and a wedge of lime.
