Author: Amira


  • 2 Tablespoon olive oil.
  • 1 Tablespoon unsalted butter.
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken thighs.
  • Salt and pepper to taste.
  • 3 garlic cloves crushed.
  • 1/3 cup chicken broth.
  • 1 Tablespoon lime juice.
  • 1 Tablespoon flour or corn starch dissolved in 1/4 cup of water.
  • 2 Tablespoon dill weed chopped. Or you can use fresh cilantro or any herb of your choice.


  • Use half a lime to rub the chicken on both sides first - this is an optional step I always make to take any smell away from the chicken before cooking.
  • Heat a non stick pan oven over medium high heat. Add the oil and butter, wait until butter melts and then add chicken thighs. Cook on both sides until nicely browned.
  • Remove thighs to a plate.
  • Reduce heat, add chicken broth, garlic and lime juice bring the mixture to boil.
  • Add the dissolved flour and stir until well combined.
  • Add the thighs back, coat the chicken well with the sauce, simmer for 15 minutes until it is done.
  • A couple of minutes before it is completely done - that is almost after 10 minutes- stir in the dill.
  • Serve hot with green salad, peas and brown rice.
