Gluten-Free, Casein-Free Spicy Lemon Chicken

- 2 Tbsp ghee
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- 2 tsp garlic powder
- 5 Tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
- Spice Rub -
- 3/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
- 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1/8 tsp paprika
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- 1/8 tsp onion powder
- 1/4 tsp dried thyme
- 1/4 tsp dried parsley
Prepare the rub in a small bowl; mix together all the Spice Rub ingredients (listed above).
Sprinkle the rub generously on both sides of the chicken breasts.
Heat ghee and oil in a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken and saute until golden brown, about 6 minutes per side.
Sprinkle with garlic powder and lemon juice. Cook for another 5 minutes, stirring frequently to coat evenly with sauce. Serve with rice, quinoa, or potato salad.
