Why I Love This Recipe

After spending practically my whole day off in the kitchen, I wanted something quick and easy for dinner. So with a couple chicken breasts and some spices, we had a nice meal of sweet & spicy chicken.

The recipe I started with was one from However, I was in the mood for something that had a touch of sweetness. Given this, I adapted the recipe for Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken to make my own Sweet & Spicy Chicken.

Here is my recipe for Sweet & Spicy Chicken.

I served this with a sour cream & chive baked potato and sweet & spicy buttered corn cobbettes.(I used the same sweet & spicy spice mix to make an flavored butter for the corn.)

Ingredients You'll Need

1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon paprika
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon dried parsley
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
juice of 1/2 lemon


In a small bowl, combine all the spices.

Flatten your chicken breasts with a meat mallet to allow for even cooking.

Coat both sides of flattened chicken breasts with the spice mixture generously.

In a pan, heat the butter and olive oil over medium heat.

Saute chicken until golden brown, about 6 minutes on each side.

While chicken is cooking, squeeze the lemon juice over the chicken.

Continue cooking stirring frequently to coat evenly with sauce.
