  4. 1/3 Pint Lime Juice (Real-Lime or fresh squeezed),
  5. 1/3 Pint Soy Sauce (or Bragg’s Liquid Aminos substitute),

Instructions:
Brown/sear the chicken breasts in really hot skillet, with olive oil.

Reduce heat to 2-3 on electric range (low to medium heat on gas).

Combine liquid ingredients in a pint jar/glass.

Pour over chicken and reduce, to a froth (when almost gone [reduced] will boil as a froth) about 10 minutes.

Turn chicken and add 1 pint water and reduce again.

Can eat plain, but this really tart chicken is best as a garnish on salads and such.

Use for Pizza toppings, Quesadillas, Salad Toppings, etc.
