This dish is simple to make and the sauce is wonderful.

INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):


  • Spray a large skillet with vegetable cooking spray. Heat over medium heat before adding chicken breasts. Cook for 8 to 10 minutes, or until tender (see note), turning to brown evenly. Remove from the skillet and keep warm.
  • In a mixing bowl combine lime juice, apple juice, cornstarch and bouillon cube. Add to skillet and cook, stirring, until thick. Spoon sauce over chicken to serve.

  • Note:

    Chicken Test for Doneness (per Washington Fryer Commission) No matter what method you use for cooking chicken, the most accurate test for doneness is a meat thermometer. Since chicken is never ready to be served until it is done, always be sure it is completely cooked. Whole or bone-in chicken should reach an internal temperature of 180 degrees F, and boneless chicken should be cooked to 165 degrees F.

    Other indicators for doneness include: A fork or toothpick can be inserted with ease. The juices should be clear, not pink. Bone joints move easily.
