INGREDIENTS
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, or chicken tenderloins
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • garlic powder
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 2 Tbsp McCormick Grill Mates chipotle powder seasoning, divided (1 Tbsp for sauce & 1 Tbsp for rubbing into chicken)

INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over high heat.
  2. Rub the chicken with olive oil, season with salt, freshly ground black pepper, garlic powder, and 1 Tbsp Chipotle powder seasoning. I like to rub the chicken with a little bit of olive oil because it helps keep all the juices in the chicken and the chicken stays tender & juicy.
  3. Reduce heat to medium and place chicken in skillet. Do not overcrowd the skillet. Work in batches if necessary. Cook chicken over medium heat for about 5 - 6 minutes on each side
