About this recipe: A very easy recipe for chicken breasts, which are flavoured with butter and lime juice. Serve with lime wedges on the side. This goes nicely with rice and green veg. You could try chopped fresh coriander instead of the dill.


Serves: 6 

  • 4 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 6 skinless chicken breast fillets
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 110g butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried dill

Prep:5min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:30min 

  1. Heat oil in a large heavy frying pan over medium high heat. Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Cook until lightly browned, about 3 minutes on each side. Cover, and reduce heat to low. Cook until no longer pink, and juices run clear, about 10 minutes. Remove chicken from pan, and keep warm.
  2. Drain excess oil from pan. Stir in lime juice, and cook over low heat until it begins to bubble. Stir in butter, 1 tablespoon (15g) at a time. Continue stirring until butter becomes opaque, and sauce thickens. Remove from heat, and stir in dill. Spoon sauce over chicken, and serve.
