Spicy Garlic-Lime Chicken

Here is an oldie but goodie recipe from Allrecipes.  I used to make this often, and decided to re-visit it.  It's still delicious!  It's pretty easy too, especially if you mix up the spice mixture beforehand.  I doubled the spice mixture (except the salt) and there wasn't enough to coat all the chicken.  I think I would quadruple it next time for four chicken breasts.  I'll reflect that in my post.  Also, I think this dish would be good de-glazed with something to get all the spices and yumminess off the pan; maybe chicken broth or wine.  Then you could pour that liquid over the chicken when serving.  We had this with yummy Cilantro-Lime Rice
