Garlic Lime Chicken

2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into pieces
1 cup chicken broth
1 1/2 Tablespoons lime juice
1 Tablespoon corn starch
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon dried parsley
1 Tablespoon butter
8 ounces pasta (I used penne)
1 - 2 cups broccoli florets (frozen will work best)
Parmesan Cheese
Bring a pot of salt water to a boil, and cook pasta according to package directions. During the last five minutes, add the frozen broccoli. When fully cooked, drain. Heat butter in pan over medium heat. Add chicken and cook into no longer pink. Meanwhile, in a bowl mix broth, lime juice, starch, garlic, salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, thyme, and parsley. Pour the mixture into the pan over the chicken. Simmer on medium until sauce thickens. Toss the cooked broccoli and pasta into the pan and mix well with sauce. Cook about 2 minutes. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese before serving.
2 servings.
